Sam Johnson Announces Free Annual U.S. Academy Information Forum
PLANO, TX – On Saturday, September 24th, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) invites Collin County students and their families to attend the annual U.S. Service Academy Information Forum. Nomination and evaluation procedures will be explained and representatives from the Military, Naval, Air Force, and Merchant Marine Academies will be present. Afterwards, there will be a break out session for students and parents to meet Liaison Officers and learn more about Academy life.
This is a FREE information session open to all, and no appointment or reservation is required.
Students interested in seeking a nomination to the U.S. Air Force Academy (Colorado Springs, CO), the U.S. Military Academy (West Point, NY), the U.S. Naval Academy (Annapolis, MD), and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (Kings Point, NY) are strongly encouraged to attend.
“Serving our Great Nation in the military was one of the highest callings of my life, and it’s inspiring to see America’s next generation of leaders seeking to do their part to serve the greatest country in the world that we are blessed to call home,” said Johnson, a 29-year Air Force veteran and POW. “It is my honor and my privilege to assist these young men and women in answering their own call to duty, and I hope this information session will help them and their families prepare for their service.”
Students submitting an application must do so by Monday, November 14th.
