Bozeman student nominated by Tester accepted to West Point

Senator: Haff ‘an example all Montanans can be proud of’

(U.S. Senate) – A Bozeman High School student nominated by U.S. Senator Jon Tester has been accepted to the prestigious U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y.

Tester today said Cody Haff, 18, “sets an example all Montanans can be proud of.”

A letterman in football, Cody is also enrolled in several advanced placement courses and heavily involved in school activities.  He serves as President of the Leo Club, which helps organize Special Olympics, food banks, and activities for young people with cancer.

Haff is also a member of the National Honor Society and was a Montana Boys State delegate.

“Cody is a sharp young man, dedicated to serving our country and armed with an uncommon determination,” said Tester, a member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee.  “It’s not hard to see how his character will make him a valuable leader.  Folks across our state are rightfully proud of Cody and his family.”

Haff is one of 31 Montana students Tester nominated to military academies based on their academic achievement, leadership, community service, and participation in extracurricular activities.  He is the second student nominated by Tester to be accepted to West Point’s class of 2015.
