Brooke Fraasch was nominated to the United States Naval Academy by Senator Mike Rounds

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) today announced that Milbank High School student Brooke Fraasch has been offered an appointment to the United States Naval Academy, which she intends to accept. Fraasch, the daughter of Wayde and Amber Fraasch of Milbank, received a nomination to the U.S. Naval Academy from Rounds.


“I congratulate Brooke on her offer of appointment to the United States Naval Academy,” said Rounds. “Our nation’s service academies only offer appointments to the best and brightest students, and it’s clear that Brooke has the leadership skills, strong character and dedication to academic excellence that the Naval Academy is known for. It was an honor to nominate Brooke and I wish her all the best.” 

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.
