Congressman Smith to Host Annual Academy Day Event
by Lamar Smith on March 3, 2011 at 3:08 PM
I will host the annual Academy Day event on Sunday, March 6. This event will provide high school students with information about the five US Service Academies and explain the process to obtain a nomination and appointment. Representatives from both Senate Offices and Congressional Districts 21, 20, 23, 28, 11, 27, 31 will be on hand, as well as officers from each of the service academies.
I encourage all interested students to attend this event and learn more about the opportunity to attend one of our nation’s distinguished military service academies. It is an honor for me to nominate the outstanding young people who are interested in pursuing their education at one of these academies. I am always inspired by the bright, capable, patriotic and dedicated men and women who are interested in attending the United States Air Force Academy, Naval Academy, Military Academy, or the Merchant Marine Academy. Serving in our armed forces is one of the greatest aspirations a young American can have and it is a great privilege of my job to nominate the exceptional young people who are eager to serve their nation.
WHAT: Academy Day Event
WHEN: SUNDAY, March 6th, at 2:00 pm
