We just experienced the ultimate return to home that sent us to where we are today. I am sure that you are impressed as I with the direction that Farragut has taken. Some of our classmates have declared we are aiming for the 65th (reunion).
Fred NelsonClass of 1959S
My son and I certainly enjoyed the Reunion & Homecoming weekend with you. It stirred up many fond memories of the 3 years I was a cadet and reminded me of many more activities that I’d forgotten. We were quite impressed touring the fine facility that has been created at Farragut South and congratulate you on this ongoing accomplishment. The enthusiasm of the graduates attending this Reunion was most genuine and heartwarming as well as the cadets we met. It was great seeing some of the key staff members and getting an update on the programs.
Bill BenedictClass of 1938
Thanks to the AFA staff who did a fantastic job making us feel warm and welcome. I hope we didn’t steal too much attention from the other classes, but also hope that we have provided a solid example of alumni loyalty to the school and to our ‘band of brothers’ from 1966.
Skip ThaelerClass of 1966S
I have been attending Farragut Homecomings since the 80’s and Wanda and I think this was one of our favorite Homecomings we have attended. The campus activities, neat appearances, the friendliness of the staff and cadets, to all the great events, it was energizing. Farragut is alive, well, and I am proud of my alma mater.
Ed DeSetaClass of 1967N
With the exceptional planning by the Alumni and Development office, the Class of ’68N enjoyed what would certainly be our best Class reunion ever. More importantly, you made us feel a true part of Admiral Farragut Academy South. My heartfelt thanks to all.
Chuck KoczwaraClass of 1968N
Last night’s farewell ceremonies were outstanding and, honestly, an event that I did not want to leave. A rally of cadets and families with like-minded ideas about the one true message conveyed. Admiral Farragut Academy is beloved and must continue on to meet the future needs for the sake of perpetuating all that we have grown to love.
John AkinClass of 1969S
It was such a wonderful honor for me to speak to the AFA alumni community. Thank you for having me, my family and friends had a wonderful time.
Joseph ZolfoClass of 1989N
Thank you to the entire staff at Farragut for putting on a series of events that both made us feel welcome and entertained us! We had a wonderful time! Our seven-year-old, Nathan, loves being at Farragut and being a part of the events. It was a memorable homecoming, something we look forward to being a part of for many years to come.
Bruce Sarte & Erin SarteClasses of 1991N and 1995 respectively
I was fortunate enough to have attended the recent reunion at AFA. I am class of 92S and truly enjoyed the activities hosted by the school as well as gatherings with fellow classmates. Its amazing to see how AFA has transformed into such a modern facility and progressing towards the future.
Bill BaldwinClass of 1992S
As my 20-year alumni reunion came and went I’ve come to realize what Farragut Homecoming really meant to most of us. It was our childhood and our adulthood all combined into one, and we were able to pick up where we left off 20 years ago. Some of us a little balder and fatter some of us haven’t changed at all, but still we are all close like a family of estranged cousins who hadn’t seen each other since childhood, and that Farragut bond had not been broken.
Marco InclanClass of 1997
Homecoming this year was a blast! The class of ‘98 had a great turn-out for our 20th reunion. The students made us feel very welcome on campus too, which was great to see.
