Amaranda Teany, 19, sworn in at U.S. Merchant Marine Acacdemy

Posted

A Parker woman and Lutheran High School graduate was recently sworn in as a midshipman at the United States Merchant Marine Academy and as a member of the U.S. Navy Reserve.

Amaranda Maureen Teany, 19, was nominated by Rep. Ken Buck to attend USMMA, located in Kings Point, New York, and one of the nation’s five federal service academies.

The United States Merchant Marine Academy is a federal service academy that educates and graduates licensed Merchant Marine officers. In addition to the rigorous academic and physical requirements for admission, applicants must be nominated by their congressional representative or senator.

All USMMA graduates earn both a Bachelor of Science degree and a Merchant Marine Officer license and incur an obligation to serve the country as an active or reserve officer in the U.S. armed forces.

As part of her four-year education, Teany will spend one year training as a cadet aboard oceangoing vessels. USMMA is the only federal academy where students train on commercial vessels traveling around the globe.
