Domenici nominates local student to West Point

Sen. Pete Domenici, R-NM, issued the following announcement today.

WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Pete Domenici today announced that he plans to nominate Portales student Kaci Tibbs for potential admission to West Point this fall.

Tibbs, a student at Clovis Christian School, is one of 50 students from across the state selected for nomination to one of the United States military service academies. Nominees were selected on the recommendation of Domenici’s Academy Review Board following an intense interview and assessment process that considered their academic, athletic, extracurricular, and leadership abilities.

“These students represent some of the finest young people New Mexico has to offer, and I’m impressed by their demonstrated ability and leadership,” said Domenici. “I’m sure they will represent New Mexico well as they apply for admittance to these top-notch institutions, and I commend their desire to work hard as they serve the United States.”
