U.S. Rep. Pete Stark's office is hosting an informational meeting for area high school students interested in attending a U.S. Military Academy.
Representatives from West Point, Annapolis, the Air Force Academy and Merchant Marine Academy will be on hand at the meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday in San Leandro.
Members of Stark's staff will answer questions about how to apply for an academy nomination.
U.S. senators, members of Congress and the vice president are allowed to nominate a limited number of students to the academies. The nominations are required to attend any military academy except for the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.
The meeting takes place in the Dave Karp Meeting Room, San Leandro Main Library, 300 Estudillo Ave.
