The district is pleased to congratulate Amityville Memorial High School student Shaneka Bernard on receiving a congressional nomination to the United States Military Academy.

To receive the nomination, Bernard followed the multistep application process. First, she wrote a letter of request to Congressman Peter King for the nomination. Once her request was approved, she received an application from Congressman King along with three character reference forms to be completed. After submitting the application, character references and her school grades, which the program required she hold at least a 95 weighted grade point average, she was selected to participate in an interview with a panel of five West Point alumni.

Bernard was one of two candidates selected to receive Congressman King’s congressional nomination for West Point.
