Featuring: Fred Rosenmiller; Tom Dudley ‘68S, George Wildrick ‘68S, Anthony Bernardi ‘68S; Maria Camarinos Hall ‘98; and Ethan Lipsky ’18.
Fred Rosenmiller stopped by the Alumni office and shared his many artifacts and memories of when he attended the Farragut Summer Camp in 1945, including old postcards and letters that he wrote to home during his camp. Fred also revealed that his family lineage is tied to Admiral David Farragut through Commodore David Porter. It was a very special visit and Fred is beaming with pride to have his grandson, Cadet George Wootton ‘20, attend Farragut. Fred looks forward to attending many more Farragut events during George’s high school career.
Tom Dudley ‘68S reached out to the alumni office and got contact information on his Farragut roommates, George Wildrick ‘68S and Anthony Bernardi ‘68S, both of whom he had not seen in 50 years. Tom was able to round up the trio to meet up at Homecoming, and they reconnected at the waterfront reception, picking right back up where they left off and were able to spend the entire weekend together.
Maria Camarinos Hall ‘98 has proven to be a successful business leader, and she owns two businesses: Orthomolecular Nutrition and Wellness Center which is a local anti-aging, regenerative wellness clinic, specializing in finding & treating the root cause of disease through natural substances. She also owns M&M Holistic Partners, LLC that sells health products, as well as medical devices with a team of 400 distributors. Maria has a passion for natural therapies and helping people. She joined us for Homecoming 2018 and shared her feelings about coming back to Farragut.
“This year’s 85th Celebration and Homecoming fell on my class’s 20th-year reunion, which was simply outstanding! Admiral Farragut and their staff really went above and beyond to plan an entire weekend of activities and events for all who attended. It was amazing to see friends and classmates reminisce about the good old days and see what AFA has been up to these days. Participating in this long weekend of events really left me with a new sense of pride and joy in AFA as my alma mater. We all enjoyed this special weekend.”
“Coming back as an alumnus was great. Not only am I now part of a new family of graduates but I am still apart of the family of students. Returning to visit my friends at Farragut, I was surprised at how many people were excited to see me and it made me feel so welcome and as though I had never left. It made me sad to say goodbye even after being on campus for just a few short hours, and I can’t wait to come back over the next few years and many for to come,” Ethan Lipsky ’18, currently attending USMMA
