Joyce to Host Service Academy Information Fair

BAINBRIDGE – Congressman Dave Joyce (OH-14) today announced that his office will host an information fair in late September for prospective nominees to United States service academies. The event will be attended by officials from each of the five service academies: the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, NY; the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD; the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO; the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, CT; and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, NY.

“The United States service academies have always attracted our best, brightest, and bravest,” said Dave. “One of the greatest privileges of representing Ohio’s 14th Congressional District is having the opportunity to encourage America’s future leaders. This information session is a great opportunity for high school students to find out if attending a service academy is right for them. To those planning to attend, I applaud your interest in serving our great nation.”

The information session will include an overview of academy life, instructions on how to work with Dave’s office throughout the nomination process, as well as an opportunity for students to meet with academy representatives and discuss requirements for admission. Academy nominations are available only through a Member of Congress, the Vice President, or the President. After receiving a nomination, students must then be accepted by the individual academy for final admission.

Admission to the information fair is free; see below for location and time details. For additional information, or if you have any questions about the event, please contact Maureen Jeffery at Dave’s Mentor office at (440) 352-3939 or Maureen.Jeffery@mail.house.gov.
