Representatives Adolph and Kampf Applaud Passage of Legislation Creating The Pennsylvania Legislative Appointment Initiative at Valley Forge Military Academy
HARRISBURG- Today both Representative William F. Adolph Jr., and Representative Warren Kampf supported the final passage of Senate Bill 560 which created The Pennsylvania Legislative Appointment Initiative at Valley Forge Military Academy in Wayne, Pennsylvania.
“This legislation will help draw students from across the state to Valley Forge Military Academy, one of only five institutions in the country that offers the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) Early Commissioning Program,” said Adolph.
Representative Kampf joined with Adolph and the majority of members in the House of Representatives in supporting passage of the bill which now goes to the Governor’s desk for his signature.
“I was excited to be part of the effort to move this bill through the legislature. I know this program will provide additional educational opportunities for Pennsylvania students which is great news for the Commonwealth. Students also have the chance to be considered for a program that allows them to continue their education in preparation for a future military career-- a great opportunity for the future leaders of our nation’s military” said Kampf.
Senate Bill 560 allows each member of the General Assembly to establish a State Military College selection committee that will then be able to appoint a student for guaranteed enrollment into Valley Forge Military Academy. Appointments must be made at the sole recommendation of a State Military College selection committee. To be considered by the committee and students must earn a high school diploma or GED; live within the Commonwealth during the term of the appointment; and meet the admission requirements of the college and the Early Commissioning Program of the United States Army.
Those interested in learning more about the program should contact the office of their State Representative for details and instructions on how to submit an application.
