Students can learn about West Point

An information session about the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., will take place Saturday, March 29, from 1-3 p.m. at Lawrence National Guard Armory, 9920 E. 59th St., Lawrence, on the grounds of the former Fort Benjamin Harrison, just east of the post exchange (PX) and commissary, said Capt. Nate LaMar, USMA ‘89, East-Central and southeastern Indiana military academy liaison officer.

While open to any interested high school students and their parents, the session is targeting current high school juniors and sophomores who meet these criteria: PSAT scores of at least 60 in each category or SAT scores of at least 600 in each category; athlete; and leadership roles in extracurricular activities, whether school-affiliated or not.

Personnel from West Point’s admissions office will speak, discuss ROTC options and answer questions. Congressional staff will also be present to explain the nomination and appointment process.

The U.S. Military Academy is a four-year co-educational federal undergraduate liberal arts college located 50 miles north of New York City. Founded in 1802 as America’s first college of engineering, it consistently ranks among the top five colleges in the nation. Notable West Point graduates have included Presidents Ulysses Grant and Dwight Eisenhower and Generals Robert E. Lee, Douglas MacArthur, George Patton and Norman Schwarzkopf.

Attendees should contact LaMar at NateLaMar@cs.com no later than March 28 with his or her name, grade, school and publication where event was announced.
