WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) today called Mitchell High School student Spencer Mohr to notify him of his offer of appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point. Rounds was pleased to hear that Mohr intends to accept the offer.

Mohr, the son of Mike and Kim Mohr of Mitchell, received a principal nomination to the U.S. Military Academy from Rounds. He previously received an acceptance letter to the U.S. Naval Academy.   

“I congratulate Spencer on his offer of appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point,” said Rounds. “Spencer’s leadership skills and dedication to academic excellence will serve him well as he joins the ranks of some of our country’s best and brightest students. It was an honor to nominate him and I wish him the best of luck at West Point.”

Each year, Rounds is able to nominate a select group of eligible students from South Dakota to attend our nation’s four service academies: The U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the U.S. Naval Academy.
