Amata Congratulates Local Student

Washington, D.C. –Tuesday, Congresswoman Aumua Amata sent her heartfelt congratulations to Shania Fiu, upon learning of her acceptance to the prestigious Wentworth Military Academy & College for the 2017-18 Academic school year.

“I could not be more proud of Shania, and I look forward to seeing her fulfill her dreams of serving our great nation.  Wentworth Military Academy is well known for producing some of the nation’s finest individuals, and I am proud to see a daughter of American Samoa there to represent us,” stated Amata.

Wentworth Academy is located in Lexington, MO, and serves as a preparatory institution for a commission in the National Guard.  Upon graduation, after two years of schooling, students receive their commission to serve as an officer in the National Guard.  They then must attend a four-year college to complete their bachelor’s degree.

“I want to once again congratulate Shania and her parents for the outstanding job they have done.  I know that Shania will make us all very proud and represent American Samoa in the best way possible.  I also want to congratulate all of the other students from American Samoa who are attending the Academy and know that they too are doing us all very proud back home,” concluded Amata.
