WOOD COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Eight local students were recognized after being appointed to U.S. Service Academies.

The students were honored at a reception hosted by Congressman Bob Latta on Sunday.

The students submitted their applications to Mr. Latta's office.

The applications were then forwarded to the academies.

The academies then make their final selection to fill first year classes.

"When I look at these applications, the ACT, SAT scores, grades and accomplishments, I can only say I'm glad I'm not competing against them," said Congressman Latta.

Students interested in entering military academies can contact their school counselor.
