Rep. Napolitano Holds Annual Military Academy Day
(West Covina, CA) On Saturday, November 7, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (CA-32) held a successful military academy information session at West Covina Senior Citizen Center where students, parents, and educators had a chance to learn more about educational opportunities in our nation’s military academies.
“If you really want this, you can make it happen,” Napolitano challenged the students. “Everyone here today believes in you and will continue to support you, but you have to believe in yourselves in everything you do. The service academies have developed some of our nation’s best leaders, and many of their journeys began where you are sitting today. We wish you the very best in your application process and in all your endeavors. Be proud, and stand tall.”
Approximately 75 attendees spoke with and heard presentations by representatives from West Point and the Naval, Coast Guard, Air Force, and Merchant Marine service academies as well as the National Guard.
Our nation’s military service academies are consistently ranked by U.S. News and World Report as some of the most selective and competitive colleges in the world. Applicants to U.S. military academies need to be nominated by their local Representative. Interested students should submit their information to Rep. Napolitano’s district office in El Monte by Friday, November 20, including:
• A completed Academy Nomination Application form (visit https://napolitano.house.gov/serving-you/military-academy-nominations)
• One or two letters of recommendation
• A personal statement indicating why you should be considered
• High school and/or college transcripts
• Copy of SAT or ACT score
