For Womack, home then to West Point
U.S. Rep. Steve Womack headed to the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y., on Friday for a meeting of the school’s board of visitors.
In March, the Republican from Rogers was elected as the board’s chairman.
Federal law created the board and put it in charge of monitoring the academy’s “morale and discipline, curriculum, instruction, physical equipment, fiscal affairs, academic methods, and other matters.”
Womack made another trip to West Point in May, attending the school’s graduation.
Earlier in the week, Womack also traveled around his district. On Wednesday, he visited a microbrewery and a medical waste services center in Harrison. On Thursday, he met with disabled veterans in Russellville and toured the town’s new aquatics center. In addition, he spoke with members of the Arkansas Valley Alliance during a stop at Arkansas Tech University, his spokesman said.
