Military Service Academy Day

On behalf of Congresswoman Hartzler, I would like to invite all 4th District high school students to participate in her inaugural Military Service Academy Day. The event will take place on Saturday, May 7th from 10am – 11:30am at Warrensburg High School; please see the flyer below for more details.

This event will give students an opportunity to visit with representatives from the different service academies and help them learn more about the application process. We encourage all students considering applying to one or more of the service academies to attend this informational day. Students in attendance will also have the opportunity to visit with nominees who applied through the Congresswoman’s office and were recently accepted to attend their respective academies this upcoming year.

We hope you and your students can attend this exciting event! In the meantime if you have any questions, please feel free to give our Columbia office a call at (573) 442-9311 or send me an email. Thank you for your time and consideration, and I hope you are having a great day.
