Cedar Ridge High School, Fine Arts Auditorium, 2801 Gattis School Road, Round Rock, TX 78664. This event is FREE, and no preregistration is needed.  Students,
parents, and educators will be introduced to the details of the nomination and appointment process. Representatives from all five military service academies,
university ROTC programs and area Congressional offices will be on site to make presentations and answer questions. The forum is a three-hour event and not a
come-and-go academic fair. We look forward to your participation.
