USNA appreciates all of its volunteers for an amazing year and welcomes your participation in 2019-2020.
by Tonia Klein, USNA President
What an amazing, fun, exciting, and interesting school year this has been. On behalf of USNA, I would like to thank our volunteers, all 638 of you, for making this such a successful year. Your dedication and enthusiasm for jobs both big and small to benefit USN are so inspiring. Because of you, USNA will be gifting over $190,000 to USN — $13,000 to the Hassenfeld Library, $78,000 to the Endowment for Innovative Teaching, $28,000 to the USN Arts Department, $50,000 to the K-12 Need-Based Scholarship Endowment, $10,000 to our three division heads, $6,800 to the USN Visual and Performing Arts Program, and $3,500 to the Athletics Department. USNA is so very lucky to have all of you in its ranks.
Would you like to be part of this amazing organization next year?
With our centenary Commencement now in the steamed up rear-view mirror, it’s time for taking stock of what all happened in the run since August. My favorite lens to provide focus for that project is gratitude. Not surprisingly, there’s plenty to reference, and here goes, though by no means exhaustively, followed by a short wish list for your summer hiatus at the end.
