Tiffany announces 2023 Merrill Service Academy Day
Congressman Tom Tiffany (Seventh District of Wis.) will hold his 2023 Merrill Service Academy Day on Saturday, April 22, 2023, at the Northwoods Veterans Post, 601 Johnson St. in Merrill, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m.
The program will familiarize students and parents who reside within Wisconsin’s Seventh Congressional District with the application and nomination processes for applying to each of the U.S. service academies. The deadline to apply for a U.S service academy nomination from Congressman Tiffany is Friday, Sept. 29, 2023, at 5:00 p.m.
Students will get the chance to hear the best practices of the nomination and application processes and have the opportunity to talk with members of Congressman Tiffany’s staff and representatives from all five military branches representing their respective academies. Admission is free, and parents, teachers, and students at any grade level are welcome to attend.
“Applying for a service academy nomination can be a lengthy process,” said Congressman Tiffany, “but my Service Academy Day is a great opportunity to get a head start on the process and speak directly to representatives from each service academy.”
All high school students admitted to our nation’s military service academies must first receive a nomination from at least one member of their state’s Congressional Delegation, the Vice President, or the President of the United States. Accepted students receive a fully funded, four-year university education and a commission as a U.S. military officer upon graduation.
