Congressman Lynch Nominates Marquis White of South Easton for Appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy
Congressman Stephen F. Lynch recently announced that he has nominated Marquis White for appointment to the United States Naval Academy. Marquis, the son of Harold White and Pamela Lindsay, is a senior at Foxborough Regional Charter School.
As part of his annual Congressional responsibilities, Congressman Lynch nominates exemplary candidates to the service academies. “Since September 11, 2001, the quality of applicants has steadily improved every year, and this year was no exception. These candidates are the best of the best, and I am proud of their desire to serve our country.”
“Marquis was highly recommended by his teachers and coaches at Foxborough Regional Charter School. He is a remarkable young man, and we are fortunate that young people like Marquis are willing to serve our nation,” said Congressman Lynch.
Congressman Lynch and his Congressional Liaison for Military Affairs, Bob Fowkes, examined each candidate’s record of academic, athletic, and service achievements, as well as letters of recommendation. After an extensive review process and a personal interview, Marquis White was selected as someone whose scholastic record and community contributions elevated him to the top of a list of well-qualified candidates.
Congressman Lynch said, “There were many impressive candidates this year from the Ninth Congressional District for the U.S. Naval Academy. Marquis stood out as a young man of keen intelligence and strong character. He is a wonderful reflection of his parents, Harold and Pamela. The White family, the town of South Easton, and the entire state should be proud of Marquis in this achievement.”
