Congratulations to Zachary Hartlep, '20, who just received his acceptance letter from his top choice – the University of Notre Dame! The prestigious university is ranked No. 32 in the U.S. by The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education out of more than 800 colleges and universities and accepts just 16% of applicants. Zach received his acceptance letter just weeks after receiving an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy following his nominations from PA Sen. Pat Toomey and Rep. Mike Doyle.
Additionally, in February, Zach was awarded a Type 1 full-tuition Air Force ROTC scholarship. This scholarship will cover four years' of tuition at a public or private institution with an Air Force ROTC detachment. This scholarship also comes with a monthly stipend for living expenses and an annual stipend for book expenses.
Earlier this school year, Zach also received a National Merit Letter of Commendation.
Great job, Zach!
