Greetings from Senator Capito’s office!
Last year, more than 20 students (from various WV counties - Berkeley Co., Cabell Co., Jackson Co., Jefferson Co., Kanawha Co., Mineral Co., Monongalia Co., Monroe Co., Ohio Co., Putnam Co., etc.) accepted appointments to attend U.S. service academies and prep schools! One key to a student’s success (besides academic, physical, and extracurricular achievements) is being informed about potential opportunities at these educational institutions and starting the information gathering process as early as possible.
We are writing to request that you spread the word that Academy Day 2021 will be held for any and all students, parents and school officials interested in learning more about U.S. service academies (Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marines, Military/West Point, Naval). We will also have representatives from local ROTC programs on hand to discuss ROTC scholarship opportunities and a representative from the Dept. of Defense’s Medical Examination Review Board will join us on Saturday, September 25, 2021 and Sunday, September 26, 2021.
Academy Day is an opportunity for students, parents, and school officials to ask questions and obtain information regarding the U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Coast Guard Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, U.S. Military Academy and the U.S. Naval Academy as well as the ROTC scholarship process. No Registration Required.
Students who want to attend a prestigious U.S. Service Academy are generally more successful when they begin planning courses and extracurricular activities early in their academic career. Please attend and encourage middle and high school aged students and parents to attend.
Representatives will be ready to answer questions regarding the educational, physical and recreational requirements to attend these prestigious institutions or obtain an ROTC scholarship. I have attached a flyer regarding Academy Day 2021 that you are welcome to forward, print, post, and/or distribute.
