“It is a distinct honor when our students are selected to our nation’s top service academies, and I’ve been thrilled a number of our community’s students have been chosen in past years. If a student desires to pursue this distinguished education and career, it is important they start the process early in their middle and high school careers. Service Academy Day provides interested families with essential information as they consider serving our country through military service.”
