The Met Sacramento student accepted to West Point, Air Force Academy
The Met Sacramento High School senior Abbie Kizer learned this month that she has been accepted to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The process for admittance to one of the U.S. military academies is extremely difficult to navigate: Students must be nominated for consideration by the President, the Vice President, a Congressional Representative or a U.S. Senator. Only one student per Congressional district can be nominated.
From the 15,000 applications that West Point accepts as complete, 1,200 freshmen are selected to attend. Those selected receive a world-class college education with tuition, room and board and expenses fully paid.
Kizer was also accepted to Point Loma Nazarene University.
In addition to excellent grades, Kizer interns at the Sacramento State Veteran’s Success Center. “She put her interest in the U.S. military and her exceptional ability to help others do good work,” says Met advisor Katy Hensley.
Adds Principal Vince Wolfe: “She is a phenomenal young lady and we are proud to see her graduate this year from the Met Sacramento High School.”
