Last week I went to my congressman's office and brought doughnuts with a Box o' Joe as a token of appreciation for the nomination I received--in March 2017. It is not the congressman, but 1 staff member that determines who receives a nomination in my district. While speaking to this staff member I was informed that they will tell the parents they gave a candidate a nomination yet tell the academy that the parents want it more than the student and they are probably not a good fit. I was shocked. That is giving someone false hope. When I asked why it took 3 months for my nomination to show up in my portal, they said it was a mix up.....and off to NAPS I go!
