Emma Begin, of Chelsea, has been accepted an offer to attend the United States Military Academy at West Point. Congresswoman Chellie Pingree nominated Begin to the Academy in December.

Begin graduated from Hall-Dale High School in 2016 and has spent the past year at the United States Military Academy Preparatory School at West Point.

Her parents are John and Michelle Begin.

To be considered for an appointment to a service academy, applicants must be nominated by an authorized nominating source, which includes Members of Congress.
