Dakota Dunes Student Offered Appointment to U.S. Naval Academy

Meredith Lammers was nominated to the United States Naval Academy by Senator Mike Rounds

WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) today announced that Dakota Valley High School student Meredith Lammers has been offered a fully qualified offer of appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy, which she intends to accept. Lammers, the daughter of Gary and Lori Lammers of Dakota Dunes, received a nomination to the U.S. Naval Academy from Rounds.

“I congratulate Meredith on her offer of appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy,” said Rounds. “Her desire to serve her country is admirable, and she has worked hard to gain admission to the Naval Academy. After attending the 2017 Naval Academy Summer Seminar, she knew that it would be a perfect fit. We wish her all the best as she takes on this opportunity.”

“I am very appreciative to have received an offer of appointment to the United States Naval Academy,” said Lammers. “I am humbled to be accepted into such a prestigious institution. I look forward to serving my country with pride and dedication.”

Each year, Rounds is able to nominate a select group of eligible students from South Dakota to attend our nation’s four service academies: The U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the U.S. Naval Academy.
