I know they will represent the Third District well.”
Specifically on Chadron High senior Mark Taylor his comments were, “Mark Taylor of Chadron, son of Brian and Sara Taylor, is a senior at Chadron High School. He has been nominated to the U.S. Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, Colorado, and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York.”
