Thomas Forstmeier of Bellfonte gets US Naval Academy Appointment
Howard Richman, 5/20/2012

Congratulations to Thomas Forstmeier of Bellefonte. He received an appointment to the US Naval Academy from his Congressman Rep. Glenn Thompson. The Centre Daily Times reported on May 15, 2012:

U.S. Rep. Glenn Thompson recently announced the fully qualified appointment of Thomas Forstmeier, of Bellefonte, to the U.S. Naval Academy. Forstmeier, a son of Kenneth and Elizabeth Forstmeier, will join the Academy as a member of the Class of 2016.

Forstmeier was home-schooled throughout high school and excelled in Advanced Placement courses and was nominated for the National Merit Scholarship Program. In his senior year, he entered dual enrollment at Penn State, studying calculus and economics.

Forstmeier was captain of the swimming and lacrosse teams at Bellefonte Area High School and has a black belt in tae kwon do. He also has volunteered with the Bellefonte Children’s Fair and at Mount Nittany Medical Center.

Students at the Naval Academy all receive 100% scholarships. And if they make it to graduation, they receive appointments as officers in the US Navy. Over the years, almost all of America's top military leaders have graduated from our military academy.
