Annual Academy Day on Sat. at Rincon High

Citizen Staff Writer

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.



Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
