MidWeek Islander (Central Oahu) - - Central Oahu Sports -

Two Cen­tral Oahu youths have been nom­i­nated to U.S. ser­vice acad­e­mies by U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono. Her of­fice an­nounced the rec­om­men­da­tions last month, in or­der for them to be con­sid­ered for fi­nal ap­point­ments for the fall se­mes­ter of 2013.

“I nom­i­nate th­ese young women and men with great pride as they col­lec­tively rep­re­sent the finest qual­i­ties Hawaii has to of­fer,” said Hirono, who will move to a U.S. Se­nate seat next month, “in­tel­li­gence, ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment com­bined with the aloha and ‘can do’ spirit I know they’ll bring to their fu­ture en­deav­ors.”

The nom­i­nees are To­mas So­dini of Wa­ialua (Mililani High School) to the U.S. Mer­chant Marine Academy, and Alexan­der Neu­man of Wahi­awa ( Lee­ward Com­mu­nity Col­lege and Chris­tian Ed­u­ca­tion In­sti­tute) to the U.S. Naval Academy.
