Capito Announces Fall Academy Days

Four events to offer students information on U.S. service academy admissions

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) today announced she will host four “Academy Days” this fall for West Virginia students interested in learning more about admission to U.S. service academies and available Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) scholarships. Members of Senator Capito’s staff will be available at each event to provide information on nominations to the following academies: Air Force, Coast Guard, Military/Army, Naval, and Merchant Marine.

“Each year I have the honor of nominating young West Virginians for admission to our nation’s service academies. It is one of my most important responsibilities as a U.S. senator and one that I look forward to every year,” Senator Capito said. “These events are great opportunities for students to learn more about the service academy experience and how the admissions process works. I hope West Virginia students and their families will attend these informational sessions happening throughout the state this fall.”

During the events, various service academy admissions representatives will be available to answer questions, and representatives from local ROTC scholarship programs will discuss program details with prospective students and their families. Additionally, a representative from the Department of Defense’s Medical Examination Review Board (DoDMERB) will be in attendance at the September 15 and September 30 programs.
