Seven Howard County students have been chosen to enter the U.S. Naval Academy this fall.
The academy appointees are: Carl Bochau, John Calvert, Greg Donofrio, and Anthony Yanero of Mount Hebron High School; Jonathan Jackson of Glenelg High School; Eugene Miller of Atholton High School; and Marguerite Morrison of Centennial High School.
To apply to the academy, students must be nominated by a member of Congress, who judges them on academic scores, community service, leadership skills and athletic ability. Applicants also must pass a medical examination and appear before a 17-member admissions board made up of Naval Academy faculty and staff members.
