Greenwood High School student, Alex Goff, has been appointed to the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., U.S. Rep. Brett Guthrie, R-Bowling Green, announced last month in a news release.
An appointment is an offer of admission to the academy which allows the student to accept or decline admission to the Academy. Over the course of the next few months, Congressman Guthrie will announce any additional appointments.
Each year Guthrie nominates a limited number of high-achieving and well-rounded students to our nation’s service academies, and the applicants chosen, go through a rigorous and competitive application process.
“I am proud to see such motivated students from the Second District offered the opportunity to pursue their dreams if they choose at such prestigious institutions,” said Guthrie, who represents Kentucky’s 2nd Congressional District. “These students have strived and excelled in academics, leadership, and athletics with the goal of obtaining a great education along with military experience.
Alex has a 4.0 grade point average and has held several leadership positions during his Greenwood High School career. He has been active in sports as well, and will be playing football at the Academy.
Alex is the son of Jim and Annette Bratcher Goff. He has one sister, Mackenzie, who is a student at WKU. He is the grandson of the late Roy and Dorothy Bratcher of Clarkson, and of Brooke Hunter Goff of Leitchfield and Cecil and Kathy Goff of Bowling Green.
