Operation Information Program

Saturday, November 23

“Operation Information” is an outreach program which gives high school students the opportunity to meet a Midshipman who is attending the United States Naval Academy. Caroline Johnston is a sophomore at the USNA who grew up and attended schools in the Bedford area. During a brief presentation she will talk about the United States Naval Academy, the admissions process, and the summer opportunities offered to high schoolers. The presentation is geared towards 9th-11th graders who are curious about the Naval Academy and Service Academies in general. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A. Registration helpful but not required.
