Crawford Holds Service Academy Information Session

Feb 06, 2014

Congressman Rick Crawford (AR-1) has invited young people with an interest in serving their country to attend the 2014 Congressional Service Academy Information Session on Thursday, Feb. 20 from 6-9 p.m. in Jonesboro, Ark.

The event—held on the fourth floor of Jonesboro’s Regions Bank Building, located at 2400 East Highland Dr.—offers information to First District students, parents, principals, and guidance counselors about free college education opportunities offered by U.S. Service Academies and the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) college scholarship program.

Congressman Crawford said representatives from all five U.S. Service Academies—including the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, the U.S. Military Academy, and the U.S. Naval Academy—will have booths, make presentations, and take questions during the event.

“I’m pleased we have such excellent representation at this session,” Crawford said. “U.S. Service Academies not only prepare the next generation of our country’s leaders and defenders, but they also help make better young men and women through free, educational opportunities. I encourage any interested student within Arkansas’ First District to attend.”

While attendees face no registration costs, they should RSVP to Ms. Sherrie Mitchell at 870.203.0540 or to reserve a spot. Interested parties may also forward questions to Ms. Mitchell.



The following cities house the five U.S. Service Academies: Colorado Springs, Colo. (U.S. Air Force Academy); New London, Conn. (U.S. Coast Guard Academy); Kings Point, N.Y. (U.S. Merchant Marine Academy); West Point, N.Y. (U.S. Military Academy); Annapolis, Md. (U.S. Naval Academy).
