ST. GEORGE — Brigham Young University plays the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland on Sept. 7. Imagine being at the next BYU-Navy football game as a midshipman at the Naval Academy.

Students who want to watch or play in that game as part of the Brigade of Midshipmen can learn how to do that just two nights after the football game. St. George Academy Night will be held in the Dixie High School Auditorium at 7 p.m. on Sept. 9. High school and middle school students will learn then how they can earn one of the $400,000 scholarships to Annapolis, West Point or the Air Force Academy.

Come meet graduates of all three academies who now live in St. George and want to help students realize their potential by being appointed to West Point, the Air Force Academy or Annapolis. Joining the graduates will be representatives from Sen. Mike Lee’s office, Sen. Mitt Romney’s office and Rep. Chris Stewart’s office to give instructions on getting a nomination to an academy.

Attending an academy provides a wonderful education while getting paid along the way. Summers include flying Air Force and Navy aircraft, serving aboard Navy submarines and ships, traveling abroad, being a soldier or Marine for a month, jump school and experiences only available to cadets and midshipmen.

High school freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors are encouraged to bring their parents and grandparents to learn how to earn one of these $400,000 scholarships at St. George Academy Night. Great opportunities are available today to young men and women who are chosen to attend the Naval Academy in Annapolis, the Army’s Military Academy in West Point, New York or the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.
