Murray High’s very own Tasia Stevens has been accepted to the United States Military Academy (also known as West Point) located in West Point, New York in Orange County.

Tasia first chose to apply because she wanted a good education but also to serve her country. She started her application at the end of her sophomore year which results in about a two and a half year process. Most seniors take from one hour to 3 weeks to complete theirs which shows just how dedicated Stevens was to get into this school.

Her application consisted of essays, fitness tests, physicals, and a nomination from a member of congress. Her nomination came from Senator Orrin Hatch.

Tasia found out the beginning of April that she had been accepted to this prestigious school. At first she was nervous to tell her family that she’d be moving out of the state for the next five years but once she told her family, they were very supportive and excited for her which led to her excitement as well.

“I’m most excited for the opportunity to serve my country,” said Stevens. 

After graduation from West Point Tasia plans to attend medical school.

To help herself prepare now for West Point she takes classes at the school to help her academically and works out while wearing combat boots and heavy backpacks. Her commitment to the military is five years of service.

Tasia tries to downplay it but she is actually really proud of herself and Sparta Nation is proud of her too!
