Thomas "Hunter" Purvis has received an appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point. Each year, thousands of high school students apply for admission to USMA, but only a few are accepted. Being accepted for admission to the United States Military Academy (USMA) at West Point is an exceptional honor reserved for our nation’s most exceptional students. But it takes more than excellent grades to be accepted for admission. USMA also wants leaders who are physically fit and of outstanding character. Those who are selected to attend USMA receive a college education that is unparalleled in the world, with tuition, room and board, and expenses paid in full. Hats off to Hunter!
