Rep. Valadao hosts Service Academy Night May 4 at Hanford West

By The Leader Staff

Kings County Congressman David G. Valadao will host a Service Academy Night next week to give Central Valley students an opportunity to learn more about the application process and speak to Service Academy representatives.

“Each year, one of my greatest privileges as a member of Congress is nominating exceptional students from the Central Valley to our country’s Service Academies,” said Valadao. “I encourage any student interested in serving their country to attend academy night to learn more about the application process.”

When: Wednesday, May 4, 2022, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm

Where: Hanford West High School Cafeteria, 1150 W Lacey Blvd, Hanford, CA 93230 

This informational event is recommended for middle school and high school students who reside in California’s 21st Congressional District and are interested in attending a military academy. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the Congressional Nomination process and meet representatives from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and U.S. Coast Guard Academy, and ROTC programs.

Service academies are some of the most prestigious educational institutions in the world, offering students an excellent education and commission as military officers. Accepted students receive a four-year university education, room and board, medical and dental coverage, and a stipend while at school. Upon graduation, academy students commission as military officers and serve a five-year commitment in the Armed Forces.
