SUMMIT, NJ - Students and parents are invited to a presentation by Naval Academy Midshipman First Class Carey Fries, Summit High School Class of 2010, to be held at Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School (LCJSMS) November 25 at 3:15 p.m.  The presentation will be facilitated by Summit Common Council Member Patrick Hurley, United States Naval Academy Class of 1987.

Attendees will learn what it takes to gain access to one of the most elite institutions in the world, The United States Naval Academy, whose alumni include a President, members of Congress, astronauts, Medal of Honor winners, professional athletes, and Chief Executive Officers.
America's Service Academies are some of the most selective universities in the nation.  More so than any other institutions, gaining acceptance requires a candidate to be well-rounded, distinguishing themselves in academics, athletics, being a team player and, most importantly, demonstrating strong leadership qualities.  Any student considering applying to a service academy should begin the process at the onset of their Freshman year in high school.  There will also be an opportunity for parents and students to ask questions about preparing for a future in the service.
The event will be held in the LCJSMS Orchestra Room (Room 160) and, for further information or to RSVP, contact Jeffrey Heaney at 908 / 273-1190, extension 4502, or via e-mail at
