Rep. Mikie Sherrill, the congresswoman who serves the district that includes Verona, is holding a webinar to provide information on applying to the U.S. service academies on Monday, October 4 at 5:30 p.m. The five U.S. service academies are the United States Military Academy (USMA) in West Point, the United States Naval Academy (USNA) in Annapolis, Maryland, the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the United States Coast Guard Academy (USCGA) in New London, Connecticut, and the United States Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA) in Kings Point, N.Y.
Sherrill is a graduate of the Naval Academy. “Attending the U.S. Naval Academy was an incredibly formative experience,” Sherrill said in an announcement about the webinar. “It was there in Annapolis that I embarked on a life-long career in public service to our country. To now be the one who nominates the next generation of students to our service academies is an incredible honor.”
The webinar will provide information on all of the service academies, as well as the ROTC scholarship programs. To register, click here.
