Admiral Farragut Academy was featured in the August episode of Living Local, a monthly video program on the City of St. Petersburg’s public access channel called St. Pete TV. The series focuses on neighborhoods throughout St. Petersburg that have helped shape the character of the city.
Produced by Shay Brumbaugh and co-directed by Michael Flanagan and Josh Martin, the video does a masterful job of displaying Farragut Hall, which at one time served as an elegant hotel for the rich and famous. In the episode, Captain Tom McClelland, Farragut’s development officer, illustrates the allure of the building, which once housed celebrities like Al Capone and Babe Ruth.
Thanks to Capt. McClelland for doing such a great job representing AFA. Thanks to Melissa Kramer for organizing the production on campus. Thanks to the City of St. Petersburg, namely Shay Brumbaugh, Michael Flanagan, Josh Martin, Mark Stroemich (aerial photography), and Joe Barbieri (aerial).

Mike Holmes who attended with the class of ‘83, now runs for office, seeks to make a difference
“What I do know is Farragut was the catalyst that turned me from an academic failure to an academic success.”
— Mike Holmes, soldier, writer, adventurer, goatherd, and candidate for State Representative from southeast Arizona
Too often, we think of an alma mater as the sole institution that forged our future. We assume the school in which our name is attached to parchment paper has registered the most impact. For many, though, the place of existence upon graduation date simply stands as a stopping point in between discovery and success. Such is the case for Mike Holmes, an economic development officer for Pima County, Arizona who is running to be a state representative for Legislative District 14. Read more
With college football fast approaching, we decided to catch up with one of the BlueJackets who will be playing in college this season. Todd Macon ‘13, who lettered in all four years as a running back at Farragut, is expected to be a major contributor to the football team at Liberty University this year after finishing the 2015 season ranked second on the team in touchdowns with eight. While the Liberty Flames enter the 2016 campaign with five capable running backs, The 5-foot-10, 210-pound Macon is the presumed starter and the projected number one back on the depth chart. Although he finished last season with just 303 yards on 73 carries, the St. Petersburg native is excited about taking a larger role this year.
