In a press release, Congressman Sam Graves announced that he is nominating Hannibal Senior John Maune to attend the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York.

Any student wanting to attend West Point must meet extremely selective admission standards, with an Academy Nominations Review Board interviewing and reviewing all applications before making final recommendations to Congressman Graves.

Maune is a three-sport letterman at Hannibal and is active in Student Council, FBLA and Key Club. He is set to graduate in the spring with a weighted GPA of 4.18.
