A.J. Augustine ’09  was recently selected to be the “aide de camp” to Brigadier General George N. Appenzeller (Deputy Commanding General for Army Regional Health Command-Pacific). A.J.’s responsibilities consist of acting as the liaison between other military and civilian organizations to help facilitate events, providing support and accompanying Brigadier General George N. Appenzeller during his national and international travel.

A.J. gives Farragut credit for his personal and career advancements, “After almost a decade since my graduation from Admiral Farragut Academy, I have been fortunate enough to experience a wide variety of unique adventures across both the United States and abroad. Ultimately, I have to give Farragut the credit for being that initial catalyst which prepared and launched me into my current journey!”  

Way to go A.J. keep up the important work!

Pamela Pardi, our Admissions Director, spent time in Europe and Russia this past February actively recruiting students to attend Admiral Farragut Academy. Pamela meets with educational agents, families, and interviews students to ensure it’s the right fit. During her travels, she always makes it a point to make a personal connection with alumni.

Pamela connected with Petr Charouz ‘09 in Prague. Petr has a successful career with Deloitte, one of the top risk and financial advisory firms. Petr is not just a success in his career, he is also getting ready to become a new father. Congrats Petr!

While in Europe, Pamela also connected with James Hales ‘15 in London. James is continuing his education with UCFB with a degree in International Football Business.

Martin Ludwig ‘54 had a wonderful time vacationing in Mystic Seaport, CT. Martin and his wife, Camille, enjoyed many museums in the area.  They were most impressed by the Rear Admiral David Farragut artifacts they found on display. Martin’s pride for his alma mater Admiral Farragut Academy was revived during this fantastic trip.  Below is an image of Martin and Camille at the helm of the ship.
