Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX28) announced and congratulated San Antonio Christian student Isaiah Meuchelboeck, son of Peter and Lottie Meuchelboeck, on his recent acceptance to the United States Military Academy at West Point.

“Nominating students from the 28th District of Texas to military service academies is a responsibility I take very seriously,” Congressman Cuellar said. “Isaiah’s exemplary test scores and his outstanding nomination application made him an ideal candidate, and one I trust will make the 28th Congressional District of Texas proud as he serves our nation. I’m grateful for Isaiah’s commitment to our country and look forward to following his career.”

Meuchelboeck lives in Windcrest, Texas, and in addition to impressive grades and test scores, has an impressive resume of extracurricular activities that include selection into the American Legion Boys State, anchoring and reporting for KSAC News, basketball, and volunteering with the Wounded Warrior and Family Support Center through Joint Base San Antonio.

Each year, Congressman Cuellar provides service academy nominations as one step in the military academies’ application process. Nominees must participate in a lengthy review process that evaluates their academic history, leadership skills, extracurricular activities, and personal essays. Final acceptance decisions are made by the service academy.
