Seniors Appointed to U.S. Service Academies

Longwood Seniors

MIDDLE ISLAND, NY – On Tuesday, June 18th, Suffolk County Legislators Sarah Anker and Rudy Sunderman honored three Longwood High School seniors who were recently appointed to U.S. Service Academies. This is the first time in Longwood High School history that three students have been appointed to three different United States Service Academies. Additionally, two of them have committed to play Division I athletics.

“I congratulate Kyle, Lindsay, and Susan on this tremendous honor and achievement and commend their academic success and commitment to our country,” said Legislator Anker.

Kyle Rausch will be attending the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland were he plans to study mathematics while continuing his athletic career in baseball. Lindsay Schuster will attend the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York where she will pursue a degree in political science while playing on the lacrosse team. Susan Yeung has accepted an appointment to the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado where she will major in legal studies and astronautical engineering.

“It is an honor to congratulate these students on this incredible achievement, said Legislator Sunderman. “I was happy to have an opportunity to thank them for their service to our great nation and wish them the best of luck.”

Acceptance into a United States Service Academy requires a nomination by the student’s local congressman. The Longwood seniors were nominated based on their academic achievements, leadership skills, demonstration of character, and participation in extracurricular activities. The honor of attending a service academy also comes with the obligation to serve in the military for a minimum of five years after graduating.
