Get info on attending U.S. service academies Saturday at Rincon High

High school students seeking a nomination to a U.S. service academy should attend U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ third Academy Day on Saturday.

The congresswoman, as well as representatives from the Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marine, military and naval academies, will be on hand to answer questions from students and their parents.

Representatives from the University of Arizona ROTC also will be there.

Students must apply for nomination in the congressional district where they reside, according to a news release from Giffords’ office.

If the applicants meet the high standards required by the academies, they will be offered an interview with Giffords’ academy nominating committee.

Final decisions on admissions are made by the academies.

The event will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. at Rincon High School’s Little Theater, 421 N. Arcadia Ave.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
