ATHLETIC AND SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMS 2013-14 Annual Newsletter

n

49th Edition

From the Chairman

S

ince the inception of our Foundation in 1944, we have provided promising students an opportunity to enter the Naval Academy via our preparatory school program. Our program has sponsored more than 3,800 deserving candidates to the Naval Academy over the years and today we have 250 Foundation students within the Brigade of Midshipmen. Equally important, and in consonance with our mission to maintain and enhance the Academy’s Athletic Excellence (AE), we provide critical financial support to all Physical Mission areas—club, intramural and varsity athletic programs.We also support athletic programs at the Naval Academy Preparatory School (NAPS) in Newport, RI. Our Foundation, which includes Trustees, emeriti, friends and Foundation parents, was an integral part of the last $250-million-plus comprehensive campaign to support the U.S. Naval Academy. In fact, our small group alone contributed more than $41 million towards the campaign goal, thereby continuing our tradition of relevance and responsiveness to the Academy. To preserve this tradition of support, a Fund for Athletic Excellence was established. Athletic Excellence is now our primary fundraising focus;

it’s the lifeblood of the organization. We ask all our Trustees to support this important program. Most classes have now included the Athletic Excellence fund as part of their ongoing class fundraising projects and Trustees are including AE in their estate plans. It’s a group effort! The strength and vitality of our organization continues as evidenced by the induction of the following 19 new Trustees, whom we welcomed at our fall and spring meetings: Chairman RADM Tom Lynch ’64, USN (Ret.)

Marc Baliotti ’92 Adam Borcz ’01 CAPT T.R. Buchanan ’92, USN CAPT Tom Burbage ’69, USNR (Ret.) Jerry Dawson ’91 Tom Fricke ’81 CDR T.J.

I am saddened to report the passing of 11 fellow Trustees:

On a more positive note, the renaissance of Navy athletics continues unabated. If you have visited Annapolis

recently, you have seen the extraordinary transformation that has taken place at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. It’s now recognized as the most beautiful mid-sized college football stadium in the country! More importantly, it is a fitting memorial to the sacrifice made by our Navy and Marine Corps personnel who have participated in each of our nation’s wars and continue today in the global war on terror. Several new suites, recruiting areas, new scoreboard and television facilities have been added for the 2014 football season. Our athletic department headquarters, Ricketts Hall, will soon be undergoing a major renovation and expansion. These projects greatly enhance our world-class athletic facilities. Our Midshipmen student-athletes deserve nothing less. Again, our Foundation’s purpose is to respond to the needs of the Superintendent.We have achieved that by increasing our financial support for Navy athletic programs over the past several years. There are new recognition levels (Fleet Club—$5,000/yr; Rip Miller— $15,000/yr; and Friends of Navy Athletics—$25,000/yr x 5 years) for those Trustees, parents and friends who support Athletic Excellence.We have also increased the amount of tuition assistance for each of our prep school students. Finally, our Trustees have stepped up and are involved in a wide range of volunteer projects to assist Navy athletic programs and educate our Midshipmen athletes about the rich heritage and tradition of which they are now a part.This past spring, we celebrated more than 70 years (1944-2014) of support to the Naval Academy!

RADM Tom Lynch’64, USN (Ret.), presents an Emeritus certificate to The Honorable Robert McFarlane ‘59 at the spring meeting.

I had the pleasure of meeting our 62nd Superintendent,VADM Ted Carter ’81, USN, to brief him on all that we are doing currently and our plans to enhance support to him and the Brigade in the coming years.We’re blessed that the Navy continues to provide men of his caliber to lead our beloved country. Finally, I thank each of you for your personal support. Our efforts have made a significant impact on overall athletic excellence within the Brigade and will continue to do so in the future.We could not do it without you.Thank you and Go Navy! I look forward to seeing you and working with you throughout the year.

From the Executive Director

T

his has been another outstanding year for our Athletic and Scholarship Program. I’ve really enjoyed and am privileged to work with so many wonderful families and candidates, our own Alumni Association and Foundation, and the staffs of the Naval Academy admissions and athletic departments. We held our spring and fall meetings and each was attended by many of our 250 active Trustees and their spouses.The focus at both events was staying relevant to the Naval Academy and promoting the Fund for Athletic Excellence and the prep school program. Our spring 2014 dinner banquet was especially memorable as we celebrated our 70th anniversary in historic Dahlgren Hall.While we are doing very well overall, we still need your help in our mission to support both important programs.The information provided below gives you an idea of the wonderful impact we’ve had over the past year.

Athletic Support An important part of our mission is, of course, the Foundation’s monetary support to the Naval Academy and Naval Academy Athletic Association for varsity, club and intramural sports programs. Much of the renovation work at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium was funded by our organization.We are also committed to keeping the current football coaching staff intact.With Ken Niumatalolo as Navy’s head coach and an aggressive but realistic schedule this year, we have a great opportunity to extend our current run of successful seasons and retain the Commander-in-Chief ’s Trophy. That coaching staff stability is critical to the success of the program. During the past year, we provided more than $1.6 million in private grants for recruiting, team and coaches’ travel, trophies, team equipment, radio broadcasting, athletic facilities and annual coaches and Midshipmen athletic awards.We

Executive Director CAPT Ed Wallace ’72, USN (Ret.).

are committed to providing almost $2.0 million during the upcoming year to not just the major sports but all varsity, club and intramural teams at the Naval Academy. In just the last several years, our unique organization has contributed significantly to the Naval Academy,

the preparatory school program and Navy athletics.We could not accomplish this without the generous contributions each year from our Trustees, parents and friends of the Naval Academy.Thanks again for your sincere commitment to this unique Foundation!

Scholarship Programs We completed another successful admissions cycle for the entering Class of 2018 at USNA on 1 July. Of the 45 original Foundationsponsored prep school students, 38 (25 men and 13 women) became midshipmen on Induction Day for an outstanding 85 percent success rate. One candidate was delayed for a year due to medical problems, but should receive her appointment next year if all goes well with her recovery. Two new scholarships were established this past year: The VADM Michael H. Miller Honor Scholarship was created by our Trustees to honor Admiral Miller’s outstanding four-year tour as Superintendent at the Naval Academy.

The CDR Michael B. Clark, USNA (USNA, 1969) Memorial Honor Scholarship created by his wife Lisa Quadrini, Commander Clark’s classmates and football teammates. We hosted a wonderful reception the day before Induction Day for excited Foundation students and their families at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium dining facility. More than 300 people attended the event. It was a great way to say “Welcome Aboard!” to the newest Plebe class. USNA Superintendent,

VADM Michael H. Miller ’74, USN; USNA Commandant, CAPT Bill Byrne ’87, USN and our Alumni Association/Foundation President/ CEO, Byron Marchant ’78, were there along with many of our Trustees and their spouses. Next year’s Foundation prep class (USNA 2019) is already formed, with 55 prep students enrolled at affiliated prep schools for next year (2014-2015).Their credentials are just as impressive. Historically, 95 percent of our sponsorees become midshipmen each year. Of that number, almost 90 percent will graduate in four years from USNA with a Bachelor of Science degree, the highest of any accession source to USNA. So, this program is a win-win for our students and the Naval Academy! If you have any questions or want to do more to support our programs, don’t hesitate to call our office.Thanks again for your outstanding support!
