WASHINGTON, DC -- Clare Beichler, a 2018 graduate from Rockcastle County High School, has been accepted into the United States Military Academy at West Point after receiving a congressional nomination from U.S. Rep. Harold "Hal" Rogers (KY-05).

"Clare is one of only four individuals in Kentucky's Fifth Congressional District who recieved my congressional nomination and acceptance into a military academy. It takes impeccable grades and a high school career marked by leadership and volunteer service to enter the ranks of West Point," said Rogers. "Clare was highly recommended by teachers and community leaders for her success as the JROTC Battalion Commander, as well as her passion for serving others."

Clare graduated in the top 10% of her class. She excelled during her four years on the academic team and helped coach middle school team members.

She was accepted as one of the U.S Military Academy's newest cadets at West Point as part of the Class of 2022.
