Congressman Jerry McNerney (D-Pleasanton) will hold an information session Thursday for high school students who are interested in attending a military service academy.
The event will be from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Amador Valley High School library, 1155 Santa Rita Road.
Every year, McNerney nominates exceptional students from the 11th Congressional District for appointment to the U.S Military, Naval, Merchant Marine and Air Force academies. Appointed students receive a free four-year university education, room and board, medical and dental coverage, and a stipend in exchange for a five-year military service commitment upon graduation.
Representatives from the congressman's office and various service academies will be on hand to offer information and answer questions about the application process. For more information, call McNerney's Stockton office at 209-476-8552.
