Auburndale, Florida -- A Polk County student is trying to decide which of the nation's top military institutions to attend next year.

Polk County Schools says Kelsey Ashbrook, of Auburndale High School, has been accepted into the United States Military Academy at West Point, the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado and the United States Naval Academy located in Maryland.

The extremely selective programs are among the nation's most prestigious military academies and upon completion offer students the opportunity to enter the military as an officer.

School officials say Kelsey is a "standout student who serves as president of the senior class, is a member of the school's student led executive board and is a Naval JROTC cadet".

In the past, she's been recognized for her achievements in academics, television production and community service.

Congratulations Kelsey and good luck!
