BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Congressman Kevin McCarthy is hosting a forum for students interested in the U.S. Service Academy.

The forum is open to students from the 23rd Congressional District.

Congressman McCarthy released the following statement about the Academy:

“Our nation’s Service Academies are some of the most prestigious academic institutions in the world. The academies offer much more than a strong education; they provide a solid foundation for young men and women to become remarkable leaders. Each year, high school seniors from our congressional district complete the thorough application process and are nominated to one of the Service Academies – a truly proud moment. This forum will provide students and parents the opportunity to learn more about the application process and career opportunities within the various branches of the military. I encourage anyone who is interested in learning more about service academy life to attend our forum.”

The forum will be held today, March 23, from 11 a.m. to noon at the Kern County Board of Supervisors Chambers, located at 1115 Truxtun Avenue, in Central Bakersfield.

If you miss the forum, you can still apply online. The deadline to apply for the U.S. Service Academy is October 20.
