TCHS Senior Accepted into US Naval Academy

Peyton Harrison, a senior at Taylor County High School, has been accepted to become a midshipman at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis following his graduation from TCHS this spring.

Harrison was contacted and congratulated on this high honor last night by United States Congressman James Comer (KY-1), who also nominated him.

Harrison has been a major part of the Taylor County Wrestling program through the youth, middle school, and high school levels. He said his decision to apply for and attend one of the Service Academies was largely based on the mentorship of his grandfathers, both of whom were members of the Armed Forces. He chose the Naval Academy due to its elite aviation program, which he plans to pursue.

The administration, faculty, and coaches at Taylor County are all extremely proud of this young man for his pursuit of excellence and willingness to serve his country and community. 🇺🇸

Congratulations Peyton!

Expect greatness from Taylor County Athletics!
