Rep. Aguilar Holds Spring Academy Day for Inland Empire Students
On Saturday, Rep. Pete Aguilar hosted Spring Academy Day for Inland Empire students interested in attending U.S. Service Academies. Representatives from the U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval Academy and U.S. Air Force Academy spoke at the information session where they addressed a number of topics, including admission timelines, admission requirements and preparation, the application process, course loads, available degrees and expectations.
“Expanding access to higher education opportunities and giving students the tools they need to make important decisions about their futures are my top priorities,” said Rep. Aguilar. He added, “I’m glad we were able to help connect these young leaders with the resources that they need and I look forward to seeing what their futures hold.”
Dozens of students and family members attended the workshop, which was held at Summit Intermediate School in Etiwanda. This was the second Academy Day Rep. Aguilar has held since taking office last January. He previously held a similar information session in October. Students interested in applying to U.S. Service Academies require nominations to be considered. For the class of 2020, seven students from California’s 31st Congressional District will be attending U.S. Service Academies in the Fall of 2016, all of whom received nominations from Rep. Aguilar.
