Rep. Black to Hold Military Academy Day 2018 at Wilson Central High School
Lebanon, TN – U.S. Congressman Diane Black (R-TN-06) invites all students, parents and school officials from Tennessee’s 6th Congressional district who are interested in learning more about attending our nation’s military academies to come to Academy Day 2018 on Saturday, September 15 beginning at 9:30 AM at Wilson Central High School in Lebanon, Tennessee.
The event will include presentations from the five U.S. Military Academies, a showing of “The Five Point Star,” and a meet and greet with Academy Admissions Officers, ROTC representatives, and current cadets and midshipmen. Following the program, students will be able to speak individually with admissions staff to learn more about the requirements for acceptance.
“Coming from a family of veterans, I have always believed that one of the most honorable callings in life is to serve one’s country in the military,” said Congressman Black. “That is why I host this annual event as a way to provide students in our community with information on how to continue their education at our U.S. Service Academies. I wish all of our applicants the best of luck.”
Each year, Members of Congress may nominate a limited number of students to four of the five service academies. The honor of attending a service academy comes with a commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation.
This year’s Academy Day will be held Saturday, September 15, 2018 at Wilson Central High School, located at 419 Wildcat Way in Lebanon, Tennessee. Registration will take place at 9:30 AM with a formal program beginning at 10:00 AM. The event is free and is open to all 6th district middle school and high school students and their families.
