GAINESVILLE, GA, June 22 – Congressman Doug Collins (GA-09) hosted a reception Saturday evening in honor of the 9th Congressional District’s newly admitted military service academy cadets.


At the reception, held at Luna’s in Gainesville, Congressman Collins congratulated each of the cadets and their families on successfully making it through the highly competitive application and nomination process.


Congressman Collins said, “It’s important for our whole community to congratulate these new cadets on earning admission to our service academies and to send them off with our best wishes.  We’ve really gotten to know these outstanding students through the interviews, the applications, and now the celebration of this great achievement.  We’ll miss them in Northeast Georgia as they go on to the incredible opportunities ahead, and I know we can all look forward to hearing updates on their success.”
