Washington, D.C. – Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva today invited Yuma-area students to tomorrow evening’s military academy night at Kofa High School at 3100 S. Avenue A in Yuma. The event, which begins at 5:00 p.m., will feature representatives of each military service branch and a staffer with Rep. Grijalva’s office to assist with nomination applications.
The event is open to middle school and high school students interested in a military career. Servicemembers will discuss their military experiences, the importance of strong academics, the need for a clean police record and the value of participation in student government and extracurricular activities.
Military academy night, which began several years ago as a Grijalva office event in cooperation with Cibola High School, is now in its third year of being run by Yuma Union High School District.
