Washington County Students take ASVAB

Several students are seated in classroom desks taking a test.  Three uniformed members of the United States armed forces stand at the front of the classroom looking on.As is the case every year, Washington County's sophomores, juniors, and seniors were given an opportunity to take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). The test was given at the Washington CTE Center on February 6. Twenty-two students took advantage of the opportunity and sat for the test. Proctors from the National Guard, U.S. Army, and the U.S. Navy were there to assist.

The ASVAB is required for entrance into any branch of the military. It's scores measure general intelligence and overall technical aptitude. Scores in the various strands help students and their armed forces career counselors determine which field of endeavor best fits each applicant. Taking the test did not bind students to join the service.

Washington County faculty and staff salute these young people for considering a career that helps keep the nation secure.
