Austin Teske of Shoreview nominated for admission to U.S. Naval Academy
U.S. Senator Al Franken (D-Minn.) announced today that he has nominated Austin Teske of Shoreview for admission to the U.S. Naval Academy. If chosen for an appointment by the academy, Teske, the son of Erik and Debbie Teske, would be part of the U.S. Naval Academy class of 2018 and would enter this summer. “I am very pleased to nominate Austin Teske to the U.S. Naval Academy,” Sen. Franken said. “Each year, I nominate several talented young Minnesotans to our nation’s military academies because of their strong character, academic and athletic achievements, and demonstrated leadership ability. I have no doubt that Austin has the ability to excel at the U.S. Naval Academy and become a successful future leader in our nation’s military.” Teske, currently a senior at Mounds View High School, participates in both football and lacrosse. He has also served his local community as a volunteer with H2O for Life.
