“When I started this whole process freshman year, I set the lofty goal of being accepted to all three but never thought it would happen,” he said. “It is such an honor to receive an appointment to any one of the United States service academies, but to receive an appointment from all three, it is almost unreal.”
Boswell has accepted his appointment to West Point as a member of the Class of 2022. He will join the infamous “Long Gray Line” along with the other 1,250 students who were appointed among the 14,000 applicants.
He played football four years for the Trojans and is president of the school’s National Honor Society. He is involved in student government and volunteers at Blessings in a Backpack.
“All of us at Center Grove High School are very proud of Brett,” said Principal Jeffry Henderson. “His relentless pursuit of excellence, in all he does, has been evident throughout his four years here. He has prepared himself for the rigorous requirements at West Point by taking a demanding course load while balancing his athletic, extra-curricular and community service activities.”
Boswell credits his parents, Jim and Renee, as being his greatest supporters throughout the process. “They have been with me the whole way, and I could not have accomplished my goal of being appointed to all three academies without their help,” he said. “I am beyond thankful to everyone who has helped me on this journey, and I hope to make them proud next year at West Point.”
