U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar on Saturday congratulated a Rochester high school graduate for being accepted into the West Point military academy.

Mayo High School graduate Sarah Juhn will start at West Point this fall. Klobuchar nominated her for the academy earlier this year

"Sarah has excelled in Rochester where she became a captain on the Model UN Chicago team and won the American High School Poetry Contest, all while demonstrating a strong commitment to her community. I'm confident she has the skills to serve our nation at West Point," Klobuchar said during a reception the senator hosted for students, and their families, who have been accepted into military academies.
