Two staff members ventured down to Grand Cayman on Monday, March 27th to visit Farragut alumni, current and past parents, and to host an event for prospective students.
Calvin Brown, long-time residential life staff member, and Alison Lescarbeau, Advancement Director, were greeted by Sean Moyle ’98 and Wayne Green ‘97 for a reunion. Both alumni were thrilled to see Brown and reminisced about the years they spent in the dorms under his supervision. They treated the two to a delicious local dinner.
On Tuesday, Lescarbeau went on the airwaves of Radio Cayman and Breeze, channel 105.3 with host Sterling Dwayne to promote the presence of the school on the island as well as the recruiting reception to be held on Wednesday. Admiral Farragut Academy is very well known on the island and has a stellar reputation. Sterling himself said he almost went to Farragut but just couldn’t leave his mother’s cooking!
Wednesday afternoon was spent visiting with Katherine Broderick, mother of current student Sasha ‘19 and alumna Nike ‘14. Mrs. Broderick stated how pleased she was with her decision to send her daughters to Farragut. “The warm caring atmosphere is truly the best part,” said Broderick.
On Wednesday, March 29th the staff hosted a reception at the Georgetown Yacht Club for interested students and alumni to network and talk about the benefits of attending Farragut. Farragut alumnus Troy Burke ‘86 and his wife Lisa, parents of alumnus Cory ‘16 and current student Dylan ‘19, brought their youngest child, Sabrina, to pique her interest in following her father’s and brother’s’ footsteps. Sabrina loves math and is excited to schedule her shadow day to “check out the school for myself,” as she said. Several other students listened intently to the presentation and video “Only at Farragut”, to see how the school could benefit them.
The last evening on the island, the Farragut staff hosted a dozen alumni and family for a two hour reception and reunion. Stories of the past were shared by all. The evening ended at the restaurant owned by Luigi Moxam ’98 called the Cayman Club. Farragut staff were treated with an amazing “farm to table” dinner on the water. Luigi will be getting married in May and we wish him all the best.
