Carper announces Service Academy Night set for Feb. 18
Middle and high school students, their parents and educators are invited to attend Service Academy Night at Delaware Technical Community College’s Terry Campus, set for 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 18.
Delaware’s Congressional Delegation — Sens. Tom Carper and Chris Coons and Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester — host this yearly, free event to connect Delawareans with the nation’s service academies — the Air Force Academy, the Merchant Marine Academy, the Military Academy, the Coast Guard Academy and the Naval Academy — and to learn more about the application process.
“Being accepted into any one of our nation’s service academies is a tremendous honor,” said Carper, a 23-year veteran of the Navy. “Students accepted into these programs are given a unique opportunity to obtain an excellent education, serve their country and gain valuable leadership skills that will guide them as they become our nation’s leaders of tomorrow. I would encourage all Delaware students who may be interested in attending a service academy to come join us to learn more.”
No tickets required. This is a free event for students, parents, educators and all who are interested in learning more about the service academy application process.
