WEST POINT: Johnston Senior Gets Appointed | News
Johnston High school senior William Krone has received an appointment to the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, NY, for the 2013-2014 school year.
Students have to be put forward through a congressional or a service-connected nomination. Senator Chuck Grassley had that honor for Krone.
“Admission to the service academies is highly competitive and a great honor,” Grassley said. “Students work very hard to earn this kind of opportunity, and I join in wishing William Krone well and thanking him for his commitment to serve our nation.”
Krone joins a number of other Iowa students who have been selected this year for admission to the U.S. service academies.
