Congressman Kevin McCarthy will be holding a forum for students in his congressional district who are interested in the U.S. Service Academy. 

The event is scheduled for Saturday September 23, 2017.

“Students interested in serving our nation while seeking to further excel in their leadership, rise to a great challenge, and achieve an outstanding education make great candidates for our nation’s Service Academies,” said McCarthy. “I am amazed each year at the interest and awesome talent of local students choosing to pursue this opportunity.”

At the forum, the application process to receive a congressional nomination to one of the five service academies will be presented as well as briefings and teachings by the congressman, and the Service Academy Liaison Officers. 

The forum will take place at the Kern County Board of Supervisors Chambers located on 1115 Truxtun Avenue. 

Students and their families who are interested can RSVP by email at or can give the congressman's Bakersfield office a call at (661) 327-3611.
