Farragut alumnus Greg Ransone ‘81S continues the Farragut Legacy with his children

Greg ‘81S with his sons, 8th grader Will and 5th grader Greg Jr.

Farragut Alumnus and now Farragut parent Greg Ransone ’81S describes his time at Farragut and how things have changed and yet also have stayed the same.

Dating back to the mid 70s (1974 to be exact) through now, Admiral Farragut Academy has seen its fair share of changes and evolution. As a member of the St. Petersburg campus’ first sixth grade class established during the 1974-75 school year, I feel this is especially true. One thing that has not changed is that Farragut continues educating and charting life courses for young men and women leaders. I find myself very fortunate to be rejoining the Farragut Family for a second time in a new capacity as a parent to two new members of the classes of 2023, my son Will, and 2026, my son Greg Jr.
