U.S. Rep. Matt Cartwright (PA-08) on March 29 nominated Scott Maxwell Sussman of Dingmans Ferry for an appointment to attend the United States Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., and the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Md.
Scott will now go through the academies’ competitive application processes. If offered an appointment at either academy, he will join their Class of 2025.
Scott is the son of Michelle and Steve Sussman and a senior at Delaware Valley High School. He is a member of the National Honor Society and the Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honors Society and an AP Scholar with Distinction.
He is a member of the Junior Historians, the sergeant at arms on the Student Council, and a volunteer for the Salvation Army. He is the captain of the varsity swim team and plays on the varsity tennis team.
Scott is among the 20 total students nominated by Cartwright to apply for U.S. Service Academy appointments in 2021.
“It is my distinguished honor to nominate these exceptional students as candidates for appointment to our esteemed United States Service Academies,” Cartwright said. “Each student nominated is among the best and brightest of Northeastern Pennsylvania, and they represent the next generation of great American leaders. I want to thank these outstanding young adults for their willingness to commit to serving their country. They give me hope that our best days are surely ahead.”
