Local students get up close look at Military Academies

Posted: Updated:

Several local high school students got a chance to learn more about opportunities to get an education and serve their country.

U.S. Congressman John Barrow hosted Augusta Academy Day at Augusta State Saturday.

Representatives from the United States Air Force, Military, and Naval Academies were on hand to answer questions and speak with interested area students.

Representing the Naval Academy was Midshipman Beau Allen, an Evans native. Allen says these fairs were beneficial in his decision-making process, and he hopes students in attendance Saturday feel the same.

"In my case, it was hard sometimes to determine from the websites what the academies were really like," Allen says. "But when someone came down from the academy who really knew a lot about it, that's really helpful to hear from the source."
