BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - Today, U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) announced she will host four Academy Days this fall for West Virginia students interested in learning more about admissions to the U.S. Service Academies and ROTC scholarships.

During each event, admissions representatives from the following U.S. Service Academies will be on site to answer questions: Air Force, Coast Guard, Military (Army), and Naval Academies, while information will also be available from the Merchant Marine Academy. Additionally, admissions representatives from local ROTC scholarship programs will be available to discuss program details with prospective students and their families.

Senator Capito called it one of her most important responsibilities to help nominate young men and women for admissions to our country’s service academies, also saying, “My Academy Days are a great opportunity for young West Virginians to explore the possibility of attending our nation’s most prestigious academic institutions.
