All Saints Episcopal senior Samuel Aycock will be headed to West Point.
Lubbock Congressman Jodey Arrington nominated him for the service academy. And Arrington delivered the news by phone from Washington.
Aycock is on track to be valedictorian at All Saints. Born nearly nine months after 9/11, Congressman Arrington said Aycock was born to be a freedom fighter.
Aycock said he wants to go to the academy for its academics and wants to serve his country, something he calls a duty he has to fulfill.
