Last Wednesday (May 29th), Congressman McHenry held a reception in Gastonia for the Tenth District appointees to the nation's military academies  recognizing the five who were appointed along with their parents and families.

Two of the five are from Lincoln County.

North Lincoln High School graduate Clayton Cribb, the son of Kimberly and William Edwin Cribb, will be attending the United States Military Academy at West Point where he will play football.

Lincolnton High School graduate Ruby Hoernlen, the daughter of Freda Hoernlen and Rudy Hoernlen will be attending the United States Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs.

Olivia Belcher of Hickory, the daughter of Heidi and Mark Belcher who graduated from Hickory High School in 2018 attended North Carolina State University this school year. There she was a member of the NROTC. She will be attending the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis.

Phoebe Haller, daughter of Nicole Van Nest Crane and Jacob Haller, III and a graduate of A.C. Reynolds High School in Asheville, will also be attending the Naval Academy. Phoebe was unable to attend the reception last week because she was competing in the United States Rowing Youth National Championships. 

Kenneth 'Trey' Davison, III of Cramerton, son of Kerri and Kenneth Davison, Jr. was homeschooled. He will be attending the United States Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs.

Each of the students applied for a nomination through Congressman McHenry's office and were interviewed by the Congressman's Military Advisory Committee.

"Congratulations to Clayton, Ruby, Olivia, Phoebe and Trey on this incredible achievement," said Congressman McHenry. "They will soon be joining some of the best and brightest in our nation and I am confident that they will be excellent representatives of western North Carolina. I wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors and commend them for their commitment to serving our nation." 

Congressman McHenry represents North Carolina's 10th district which stretches from Buncome County in the west to Catawba, Lincoln & Gaston counties in the east.

Not having access to the internet in 2019 is like not having a radio in the 1940s or a tv in the 1960s.  A 2018 survey of  US adults found that 64% at least sometimes get news from a news website or app, about the same (64%) as those who said they watch local TV news.  Almost half (47%) of adults get news at least sometimes from a social media site. That exceeds the 41% who read newspapers in print. TV and print actually lost ground from a similar survey conducted in 2016, while digital made advances in preference since then.
