SATURDAY, APRIL 29, 2017, 8:30 AM
Attending a United States Service Academy and serving our nation in the armed forces is a selfless and noble pursuit. Many of the students living in the 18th Congressional District have identified this goal and have endeavored through their academic career to make it a reality. To assist these students, Congressman Murphy is hosting a United States Service Academy Information Day at 8:30 AM on Saturday, April 29, 2017, at Upper St. Clair High School.
Upper St. Clair High School is located at 1840 McLaughlin Run Road in Upper St. Clair, and the event is open for all high school juniors entering their senior year for the 2018 – 2019 academic year. Present at the event will be representatives and alumni from each Academy. These academies include the United States Military Academy at West Point, the United States Naval Academy, the United States Coast Guard Academy, the United States Air Force Academy, and the United States Merchant Marine Academy.
Congressman Tim Murphy will give opening remarks followed by presentations from each of the academy representatives. Following these presentations, there will be two breakout sessions for the students where they will spend additional time with specific academies they are interested in attending.
The schedule of events is as follows:
