Appointed as one of four U.S. Representatives to serve on the United States Military Academy (USMA) Board of Visitors by Speaker of the House John Boehner in February 2012, Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) was today elected USMA Board of Visitors Chairman.

“I am humbled to be named Chairman of the United States Military Academy Board of Visitors and am grateful for the support from my colleagues in Congress and board appointees alike – we all serve as one voice in guiding this exemplary institution. I will work tirelessly for every cadet, faculty member, and member of the Army to uphold the values and objectives of West Point, America's preeminent leader development institution,” said Congressman Steve Womack after his election as USMA Board of Visitors Chairman.

“Our USMA Board of Visitors is comprised of dedicated leaders whose advice is of great value to our institution. We are pleased that the board's continued service to West Point will be carried out under the leadership of Steve Womack as its chair. Through his years of experience, he has gained a thorough understanding of the issues we face and has been a great supporter of West Point. We're excited to be able to work with him during his tenure as our chair,” said Lieutenant General Robert Caslen, Superintendent of the United States Military Academy at West Point.

The USMA Board of Visitors is charged with inquiring into the morale and discipline, curriculum, instruction, physical equipment, fiscal affairs, academic methods, and other matters relating to the academy that the board decides to consider.
