Daines Congratulates Distinguished Student on U.S. Naval Academy Appointment

Senator Steve Daines today congratulated Lucas Figi on his offer of appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

Figi, whose family is from Bozeman, Montana, received nominations to the U.S. Naval Academy and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point from Daines. Figi is currently a student at Charterhouse, a boarding school in England. 

Daines called Figi today to inform him of his offer and give his congratulations. 

“Lucas has proved himself as an exceptional student, a tremendous athlete and a leader in his community. It is my honor to congratulate him on his appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy,” Daines said. “I look forward to continuing to watch Lucas as he honors Montana through his future service to our great state and nation.” 

Figi is a champion rifleman and the captain of his shooting team at Charterhouse. He is also on the rowing team and is a member of the school’s Royal Marines Cadet Corps.
