Press Release

(Washington, DC) – On Saturday, April 30, 2016, U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall (GA 07) will be partnering with U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson and Georgia’s Congressional Delegation to host Service Academy Day at Dobbins Air Reserve Base from 10:00AM to 11:30AM. The annual event is the largest of its kind in the country, and offers Georgia high school students an opportunity to speak with representatives from each of the five Service Academies as they learn what is required for admittance.  Students and those accompanying them must register for Academy Day by Friday, April 22, 2016, at 5:00PM in order to attend.

“The Seventh District is full of remarkable young people, and each year I’m honored to have the opportunity to nominate many of them for appointments to America’s Service Academies,” said Rep. Woodall.  “For years now, the Seventh District has led the state in number of appointments, and that speaks directly to the quality of these young men and women.  I’m always inspired by their passion for service, and I look forward to meeting even more of them in this year’s process.”

For any students with additional questions about the event or the application process, information can be found at https://woodall.house.gov/services/service-academy-nominations, or by calling Debra Poirot in Rep. Woodall’s district office at (770) 232-3032.
