U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) will hold a United States Military Academy Information Night to give interested students an overview of the nomination process for applying to one of the United States military academies. The event will take place Aug. 25 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Joseph A. Gregori High School in Modesto.
“Each year I have the honor of nominating exemplary Central Valley students to our nation’s military academies,” said Denham. “The academies provide young people with extensive preparation to succeed in our armed forces. Military Academy Information Night is the best resource available for students and parents interested in learning more about how nominations work.”
The Information Night takes place each year and is open to all parents and students in grades eight through 12 from California’s 10th Congressional District. Those students interested in applying to: the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, U.S. Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, or the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point will be able to meet with representatives from the academies and Denham’s office for details of each academy’s work educating, training, and preparing students for military service.
Gregori High School is located at 3701 Pirrone Rd. in Modesto. Information Night will be held in the Multipurpose room of the school.
