Aguilar Hosts Spring Academy Day

On Saturday, Rep. Pete Aguilar hosted Spring Academy Day for Inland Empire students interested in attending U.S. Service Academies. The workshop and information session for students in California’s 31st Congressional district included presentations from Rep. Aguilar’s office and representatives from the United States Military Academy at West Point, United States Naval Academy, United States Coast Guard Academy, United States Air Force Academy and the United States Merchant Marine Academy.

“I’m always so impressed by the students we meet at Spring Academy Day, who at such a young age already know the importance and honor in attending these prestigious academies and serving our nation,” said Rep. Aguilar. He added, “This fall we’ll be sending nine Inland Empire students to Service Academies across the nation, and we currently have over a dozen students already enrolled. It fills me with pride to see our students representing our region like this each and every day.”

Saturday’s information session was Rep. Aguilar’s third Academy Day event. Students applying to U.S. Service Academies require nominations from their federal representatives to be considered.
