Staff Report – For The Record

Army Col. Szybist presents service nominee Jordan Dobranski, of Orange, with  his service nomination.

U.S. Rep. Brian Babin (TX-36) today announced the successful appointments of seven high school students from the 36th District of Texas whom he nominated earlier this year to attend U.S. service academies.

An Orange area student is included in the nomination. Jordan Dobranski, a student of Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School, has accepted his nomination.

Dobranski is the son of Jeff and Christy Dobranski and the grandson of Sandra Dobranski and Bill and Elizabeth Hanley.

“One of the distinct honors of serving in the U.S. House of Representatives is the opportunity to nominate exceptional young men and women to be considered for appointment to our nation’s service academies,” said Rep. Babin. “I couldn’t be more impressed and excited for these seven students as they take on this opportunity of a lifetime.  As the father of a U.S. Naval Academy graduate, I understand the unique opportunities presented to those who attend a service academy.  I wish them all the best as they seek to further their education and honorably serve our nation in the U.S. Military. I would also like to thank the members of our academy nominating committee who interviewed the candidates and dedicated considerable time and effort to making sure our academies have the best candidates to consider.”
