Catron Courier - - News -

Sen­a­tors Udall and Hein­rich, and Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Pearce have be­gun ac­cept­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for nom­i­na­tions to US mil­i­tary ser­vice acad­e­mies. High school stu­dents and re­cent grad­u­ates can ap­ply to en­ter an academy in the fall of 2019 for the US Mil­i­tary Academy (West Point), the US Naval Academy, the US Air Force Academy and the US Mer­chant Ma­rine Academy. Th­ese re­quire a con­gres­sional, vice pres­i­den­tial or ser­vice-con­nected nom­i­na­tion as part of the ap­pli­ca­tion process. The US Coast Guard Academy does not re­quire a nom­i­na­tion.

"Each year, I have the honor of nom­i­nat­ing some of the best and bright­est young peo­ple from across New Mex­ico to our na­tion's mil­i­tary ser­vice acad­e­mies," said Se­na­tor Udall. "Th­ese ser­vice academy in­for­ma­tion ses­sions are a great op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents and par­ents to learn more about the nom­i­nat­ing process and to meet with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the acad­e­mies and New Mex­ico col­le­giate ROTC pro­grams."

US mil­i­tary ser­vice acad­e­mies are among the most com­pet­i­tive col­leges in the na­tion and pro­vide those who en­roll with an ex­cel­lent edu- cation and op­por­tu­ni­ties for lead­er­ship in both mil­i­tary and civil­ian life.

Stu­dents have un­til Oct. 12, 2018, to sub­mit an ap­pli­ca­tion for nom­i­na­tion. Prospec­tive ap­pli­cants are en­cour­aged to be­gin the ap­pli­ca­tion process well in ad­vance.

There are also in­for­ma­tion ses­sions on May 5 At Four Corners Ser­vice Academy In­for­ma­tion Day from 1 to 4PM at the Farm­ing­ton High School, 2200 N. Sun­set Ave., Farm­ing­ton, NM and on May 8 at Mil­i­tary Ser­vice Academy In­for­ma­tion Ses­sion from 6 to 8 PM at Carls­bad High School Lec­ture Hall, 3000 W. Church St., Carls­bad, NM.
