Deptford High School Student Accepted to US Naval Academy

Deptford High School senior and NJROTC cadet Ayush Puri received an exciting letter this week from the Navy – he will be accepted into the Fall 2020 class at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

In addition to this prestigious honor, Puri learned that he was the unique winner of a scholarship from the United States Naval Academy Foundation. The Foundation will first sponsor Puri for a year of attendance at the Peddi School in Hightstown, New Jersey, for the 2019-2020 school year. This placement will be tuition-free, at a scholarship awarded to him of $42,660.

Puri will then enter the Naval Academy in Fall 2020 as a member of the class of 2024 and a future commissioned officer in the United States Navy or Marine Corps.
