Har­ris of­fers academy ap­pli­ca­tions

Record Observer - - School -

CH­ESTER — The of­fice of Con­gress­man Andy Har­ris, RMd.-1st, has an­nounced that U.S. mil­i­tary ser­vice academy nom­i­na­tion ap­pli­ca­tions are now avail­able.

A news re­lease states the nom­i­na­tions will be for those in the state’s 1st District in­ter­ested in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Mer­chant Marine academies.

Though the Coast Guard Academy does not re­quire a con­gres­sional nom­i­na­tion, Har­ris will rec­om­mend in­ter­ested ap­pli­cants on a case-by-case ba­sis.

Ad­mis­sion will be based on SAT/ACT scores, class rank, phys­i­cal ap­ti­tude scores, ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties, ath­letic abil­i­ties and med­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tions. Academies will begin to ac­cept ap­pli­ca­tions on a rolling ba­sis in Septem­ber.

Fi­nal ac­cep­tance also is con­tin­gent upon re­ceiv­ing a nom­i­na­tion from an au­tho­rized source, such as one’s con­gress­man or se­na­tor.

The dead­line to ap­ply for a nom­i­na­tion from Har­ris is Nov. 1. Any res­i­dent of the 1st District be­tween the age of 17 and 23 is en­cour­aged to ap­ply.

For a nom­i­na­tion ap­pli­ca­tion, call the Sal­is­bury of­fice at 443-944-8624 or visit www.har­ris.house.gov/serv­ingyou/mil­i­tar y-academy-nom­i­na­tions.
