 A congressional nomination and appointment to a military academy is one of our nations highest honors for young people between the ages of 17-23.  Every year, Congressman Rush nominates outstanding students from the First Congressional District, and this years class includes:

 Keith OBrien, <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Oak Forest High School, Oak Forest, IL (Air Force Academy)
