Congressman Gregg Harper (R–Miss.) will host the Third Congressional District’s Annual Military Academy Day at Madison Central High School on Saturday, April 7, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.

Military Academy Day is a free seminar for students and parents to learn more about our nation’s military academies, requirements for admission and the congressional appointment process. Harper will be joined by area midshipmen, cadets, alumni, congressional staff, and representatives from the five service academies: U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Coast Guard Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, and college R.O.T.C. representatives. Representatives from the academies and Parents’ Clubs of Mississippi will be available to help answer any questions participants may have about each of these prestigious institutions.

Congressman Gregg Harper released the following statement in anticipation of the event:



“I invite any students who are interested in obtaining a service academy appointment to attend this informative seminar,” said Harper. “I look forward to visiting with the bright young men and women from across Mississippi’s Third Congressional District considering a commitment to serve our country in the military.”

High School students preparing for college in the approaching years and considering the service academies option should participate. Middle School students are also welcome to attend.
