February 25, 2020

Riverhead High School senior Kellia Daniel has landed an impressive accomplishment by getting accepted into both the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. She has opted to enroll at USNA and will report on June 25 to begin her summer training. She plans to study mathematics.

Daniel earned these acceptances for her dedication to her school and her studies. She received a nomination for USNA by Congressman Lee Zeldin, while her West Point nomination came from the Riverhead High School NJROTC staff.

The senior has been a cadet with the NJROTC throughout her tenure at Riverhead High School and currently serves as a commanding officer. Aside from her NJROTC duties, she plays varsity volleyball, runs track and is a member of the National Honor Society.

The Riverhead Central School District congratulates Kellia Daniel on her acceptance.
