I am honored to have been elected as the newest President of your Alumni Association, (ANAAA). My goal as President is to keep our Association and the Academy moving forward, while preserving and honoring our rich history and tradition.
The association will be working closely with the Board of Trustees and the Office of Advancement to achieve the goals outlined below. We are committed to involving all alumni who are interested in contributing to these ongoing objectives. If you’re interested in learning more about how you can get involved, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
1. Preserving our History
We have formed an ANA Historical Committee led by Brad Larsen ’72. The committee is working to preserve and archive historical artifacts, photographs, and documents so that they’re intact and easily accessible for future generations. This is a long-term, ongoing project to preserve our history, and an essential project that will maintain our legacy.
A highlight of this year’s Warrior Pride Luncheon at Alumni Weekend was the Alumni Association’s screening of a video chronicling the 106-year history of the Academy. Featuring a montage of historical and candid photos throughout the years, the collection was compiled by Historical Committee Chairman Brad Larsen and Member Mark Sellinger. If you missed the film debut, you can watch it here:
2. Increasing Outreach
The Alumni Association is committed to keeping you informed of projects, networking opportunities, and Academy events. There are many ways to get involved with the Alumni Association, and I encourage you to do so. Whether you’re interested in participating on a committee, volunteering your time on campus, or simply staying in touch with us, we want to hear from you. You are always welcome to contact me directly, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Warrior Proud! Warrior Strong!
