By on September 20, 2018

High School students interested in attending any of the five U.S. Military Service Academies should plan to attend a free, informational session hosted by Rep. Paul Cook (R-8th District-Apple Valley) on Thursday, Sept. 20 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the Victorville City Hall, Conference Room D. The Victorville City Hall is located at 14343 Civic Drive in Victorville. This event was originally scheduled for this Tuesday but the meeting date has been moved to this Thursday.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about our nation’s five military service academies. Staff members from Congressman Cook’s office will be available to answer questions regarding requirements and qualifications for entrance to an academy, Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) scholarships, military preparatory schools, and congressional nominations.

High school seniors residing in Congressman Cook’s district who are seeking a congressional nomination and admission to four of the U.S. military academies — the U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Military Academy, or the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy for the fall 2019 semester — must submit a completed nomination packet to Congressman Cook’s District Office by December 4, 2018. Students interested in attending the U.S. Coast Guard Academy do not require a congressional nomination.
