Brunswick student to attend Naval Academy

Eric Kousky from Brunswick has accepted an offer to attend the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

Kousky graduated from Brunswick High School in 2015 and is currently studying mechanical engineering at the University of San Diego. His parents are Todd and Jennifer Kousky.

In a letter requesting the nomination, Kousky said growing up near the Brunswick Naval Air Station, where his father served as an officer before it was decommissioned, helped inspire his interest in attending the Naval Academy. “Becoming a Naval officer will allow me to shine as a leader in service to my country,” Kousky wrote. “The Navy offers the heritage and tradition that I have grown to admire. It is why I want to go through indoctrination and experience a military lifestyle rather than a conventional college lifestyle.”

To be considered for an appointment to a service academy, applicants must be nominated by an authorized nominating source, which includes members of Congress.
