The First Annual Military College Options Day will take place Saturday, November 14, at Cass Technical High School, 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. The event will provide parents, middle and high school students with valuable information on how eligible students can receive a college education or a rewarding career through the military. The first 1,000 students will receive a FREE book bag, compliments of the United States Army, and the Michigan Army National Guard.
Representatives from each of the Military Service Academies to include West Point, the Naval Academy, the Air Force and the Coast Guard, will be present to answer questions. Recruiters from the University of Michigan, Michigan State, Eastern and Western ROTC programs, the Active Duty, Reserves and the National Guard will also be present.
If you are a junior or senior who is definitely interested in entering the military, you will have the opportunity to take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) examination to determine your military service eligibility. Interested candidates should contact your local high school JROTC for information on bus transportation to Cass Tech. Buses will also be departing the 8 Mile, Taylor, Michigan, and Grand River National Guard Armories at 8:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. the morning of the event. A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
