Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito paid a visit to a Kanawha County high school Thursday.
Capito visited South Charleston High School to recognize members of the Junior ROTC Program and other service members.
The congresswoman presented Logan Shomo, a senior at the school, with cufflinks for coordinating audio visuals for the past two years at the "Academy Days."
Similar to college fairs, "Academy Days" are a recruiting tool to give young West Virginians an opportunity to learn about admissions to the Air Force, West Point, Naval, Merchant Marine academies and the Coast Guard.
"I think students are wanting the disciple. They're wanting the focus. They're wanting the direction," Capito said. "I think that is why you are seeing the programs grow."
All middle and high schools students who attend school in the 2nd Congressional District are invited to attend the "Academy Days."
