MILLEDGEVILLE, GA – Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) today announced that he will host his annual Service Academy Day on Saturday, August 19th on the campus of Georgia Military College. The event is designed to familiarize students with the application and nomination process for the nation’s five military service academies. Students in grades eight through twelve are invited to attend. The event will take place from 1:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. in the Goldstein Center for the Performing Arts Auditorium, where representatives from the United States Air Force, Naval, Military, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marine Academies will discuss their requirements for admittance.
“The United States Service Academies award some of the largest and most prestigious scholarships in the country,” Hice said. “Students who earn an offer of appointment receive a top-tier education, room and board, pay, and exclusive benefits and training. What’s more, these young men and women become commissioned officers immediately upon graduation. I can think of no higher honor for Georgia’s 10th District students, and each year, I am proud to congratulate the elite group of leaders who attend a United States Service Academy.”
All students admitted to our nation’s military service academies must first receive a nomination from at least one member of their state's Congressional Delegation, the Vice President, or the President of the United States. Students who are seeking Congressman Hice’s nomination should submit a completed application to his Monroe District Office by October 13, 2017.
