Forum scheduled for youth interested in service academies

Students interested in attending one of the nation’s service academies are invited to a forum Oct. 8 in Paso Robles.

The various services — U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy and U.S. Merchant Marine Academy — will send officers, cadets and midshipmen, who will provide information on life at an academy.

These representatives also will delineate the procedure to apply.

The forum will last from 1 to 2 p.m. at the board chambers of the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District, 800 Niblick Road.

To make a reservation, interested students can contact the office of Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Bakersfield, at 481-1034 or email the congressman at RSVP.McCarthy@mail.house .gov.
