Congressman David Scott (D-GA) will host a reception on Saturday, March 25, 2006 in his Jonesboro District Office to honor all participating students of the 13th District’s second annual military academy nomination process. During the reception, Congressman Scott will announce his primary selections for student nominees to attend each of the four military academies. To be considered for an appointment to either the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy or U.S. Air Force Academy, an applicant must first be nominated by a Member of Congress. Applicants are evaluated on the basis of academic performance, leadership ability, moral character, adequacy of preparation, and commitment to attend a military academy. Communities represented by this year’s student applicants include Riverdale, Conyers, Hampton, Stockbridge, Jonesboro, Locust Grove, Fairburn, Tucker, Lilburn, and Rex.
WHEN: Saturday, March 25, 2006 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. WHERE: Jonesboro District Office 173 North Main Street Jonesboro, GA 30236
