About Evans' appointment, Congressman Guthrie said, One of my greatest honors as a member of Congress is to nominate students like Xavier to our nation’s military academies. I am thrilled to announce Xavier’s appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy. Xavier is a strong student and a proven leader at his school. I know that should he choose to accept his appointment, he will serve our country admirably.

Guthrie, along with guidance from the Second District Academy Board, annually nominates a limited number of high-achieving students to our nation’s Army, Navy, Air Force, and Merchant Marine Academies. And we are thrilled to be able to share the news that Xavier has received one of these nominations.
