Tester Congratulates Great Falls’ Jacob Boetticher on Acceptance to Merchant Marine Academy

Senator nominated class of 2024 students for Army, Navy, Air Force, and Merchant Marine Academies

U.S. Senator Jon Tester congratulated Great Falls area high schooler Jacob Boetticher today on his appointment to the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.

Jacob is a varsity football, basketball, and track athlete at Power High School. He is also a member of both high school and community theatre, where he participates in choir and band.

“Jacob is an exceptional young Montanan, who has already proven himself to be a tremendous student and leader,” said Tester. “I wish him all the best on his exciting new journey at Merchant Marine Academy, where I have no doubt that he will serve our state and country proudly.”

Tester nominated Jacob in December based on his academic accomplishments, extracurricular activities, and commitment to serving and leading in the United States military. A nomination from a member of Congress is the first step in students’ applications to the four schools.

Montana students interested in applying for a military academy nomination in the future can request a nomination from Tester HERE.
