In honor of the Class of 1951, George Rodgers donated his model of the United States Coast Guard Cutter Eagle to Farragut’s Wagner Museum. Rodgers was a Naval Aviator and then retired as Vice President of Beech Aircraft in 1993.
“The decision that I made to attend Farragut in 2009 was not easy,” said Farragut alumnus Bolun “Jerry” Liu ‘12. “I was too young to recognize that I was about to begin a journey beyond imagination. An ordinary teenager is not expected to make his bed, iron his clothes, clean his own room, and do homework without supervision or parent’s help. However, by my senior year, I had transformed completely into a responsible young adult with goals for my future. I owe many of my leadership skills to Admiral Farragut Academy.”
On January 17th, Farragut’s Aviation Director Rob Ewing joined Farragut alumni Chris Miller ‘00 and Kreg Brown ‘07 to help coach in the SPIRAL Tropical Bowl. Miller was the head coach of the American team, Brown was on staff as a running back coach, and Ewing was a special teams assistant.
Spike Mendelsohn, a non-graduate who attended Farragut two years with the class of ‘00, is a successful Washington D.C. chef and restaurateur who owns several top eateries in the D.C. area. Mendelsohn became a celebrity chef after placing fifth in the TV show Top Chef in 2008.
During the 2019 Army Navy Alumni Weekend, Joseph Zolfo ’86N met fellow alumnus Thomas Salomon ’15. During this meeting, Salomon expressed his desire to get into TV production after reading about Zolfo’s career which was highlighted in the Spring 2019 edition of Reveille. Salomon reached out to Zolfo after his graduation from Drexel University last fall to see if there were any opening opportunities in TV production. After interviewing, Zolfo hired Salomon as his production assistant for the new television series he is producing called Stargirl.
We are working to enhance the Class Agent Program. A class agent is a committed and loyal group of alumni who represent their individual class years. We are looking to add additional agents for each year to support building a stronger connection between our alumni and the Academy.
Allison Kowalczyk ’14 has been studying law at Syracuse University College of Law. She was the first recipient of the Maj. Megan McClung ’91N Memorial Fund while attending Farragut and hopes to give back.
