U.S. Senator Kay Hagan invites all North Carolina 7th through 12th grade students interested in applying to a U.S. military service academy to attend Academy Day on Saturday. Senator Hagan hosts Academy Day each year to give students an opportunity to meet with cadets and midshipmen from the service academies and to learn more about the nomination process. Students who apply to service academies require a nomination from a member of Congress. Academy Day is an opportunity for students to learn about the nomination process through Hagan's office. Representatives from all five services academies - the U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Coast Guard Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, U.S. Military Academy, and U.S. Naval Academy - will provide information to students, parents and guidance counselors. ROTC representatives will also be on hand to talk with interested students about scholarship opportunities outside of the service academies. Senator Hagan comes from a military family. Her father-in-law was a two-star Marine General and her husband, father and brother all served in the Navy. Hagan will host Military Service Academy Day for North Carolina students on Saturday, September 22; Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., at Forsyth Technical Community College, West Campus Auditorium, 1300 Bolton St., Winston-Salem.
