ABOUT ZACHARY

Hey everyone! My name is Zach Weeks and I proudly represent my hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico here at the Academy. I’ve been a desert dweller my entire life, so living by the water this past year was a beautiful change of scenery. I have loved the water for as long as I can remember; I swam and played water polo back home and happily play both sports here at the Academy!

My family has a long history of service in the military, but the only service academy experience comes from my uncle, a 1980 graduate from West Point. He had a lot of insight to share with me regarding the academies, and encouraged me to apply for all of them. Long story short, I came across the Coast Guard Academy via google search, and quickly realized that it was the place for me. The CGA offered me a tightly knit Corps of Cadets, an opportunity to pursue my major of Civil Engineering and a commission as an officer in an operationally diverse service.
