U.S. NAVAL ACADEMY CLASS OF 1951

51 SECOND TO NONE!


Dear Classmates, 


I received the following letter from the Naval Academy and pass it along here:


The construction of the new Physical Mission Center at Ricketts Hall is well underway and should be completed by the end of 2019.  This impressive new facility will feature 25,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space and will celebrate the storied history of Navy athletics while also serving as a testament to the Academy’s commitment to the physical development of the entire Brigade of Midshipmen.  Ron Terwilliger ‘63 has generously donated the lead gift to advance this mission and as a result the Academy will designate this new space with appreciation and in his honor.  Ron, an academic All-American who played both basketball and baseball for Navy, was named a Distinguished Graduate of the Academy in 2013.
 
The Naval Academy Director of Athletics Chet Gladchuk said that the legacies of our programs tell our story and we welcome the artifacts, historical memorabilia and sentimental keepsakes from alumni and friends that reflect some of the finest moments in Navy’s rich athletic history.  We will be grateful for donations of memorabilia to the exhibit or, if on loan, we would return the item when timely.
 
If you are interested in donating or lending any memorabilia or artifacts, please take a photo with a description of the item or items and e-mail it to Joe Cook, NAAA Assistant Athletic Director for Special Operations and Administration at:  cook@usna.edu  Joe will follow up directly with the donor regarding further details. 
 
I have attached an electronic brochure below to show you the designer’s vision of the completed project.  Your contributions and participation will be most appreciated and will be a wonderful addition to a new facility that will highlight the athletic history of the Naval Academy as well as contributing to the accomplishment of its mission.
