Logan Schultz, a 2019 graduate of Coffee High School, is headed to the U.S. Naval Academy.
U.S. Congressman Rick W. Allen (R-GA-12) hosted a ceremony Thursday for three young men from Georgia's 12th District who received and accepted an offer of appointment to one of the nation's military service academies. Accepting an appointment obligates the appointees to commit and serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation from the academy.
Schultz was one of the three who accepted an appointment. Nathan Sand (Evans, Georgia; U.S. Air Force Academy) and Nolan Barco (Grovetown, Georgia; U.S. Military Academy) were the other two who attended the ceremony. A fourth young man, Ryan Jolly (Martinez, Georgia; U.S. Naval Academy), was unable to attend.
"Knowing that we have such exceptional young adults in the 12th District of Georgia who are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for their country gives me great hope for the future of America," said Congressman Allen. "Yesterday, I had the opportunity to recognize three of them – Nathan, Logan, and Michael – who, throughout their lives, have gone above and beyond to become valued leaders among their peers. It is with much admiration that I congratulate each of them for their many triumphs and I was proud to do my part to support them as they begin this next chapter in their lives."
