Friday Evening, September 16,
2011: Reception dinner party for the USNA
Our Alumni Association chapter hosted a formal dinner at the Summit Club on
16 September, the night before Navy beats USC. Our guest of honor was the
Superintendent of the Naval Academy, VADM Michael H. Miller '74.
Accompanying him were Commandant Bob Clark '84, Dr. Andrew Phillips, Provost
and Academic Dean, and Chet Gladchuk, Director of Athletics.
The "Supe" spoke enthusiastically about the mission and accomplishments of
the Academy and our midshipmen. USNA is at the top of the lists among all
service academies and in the top tier of just about any category of US
colleges and universities. USNA's reputation continues to grow, and Admiral
Miller thanked our alumni families for helping sustain excellence at the
Academy. Chet Gladchuk also spoke of the "winning" attitude our mids bring
to every event. "They might be out-weighed, but they won't be out-played".
We also were honored to have a big contingent of National Alumni Association
staff, including CEO Byron Marchant, who gave an inspirational talk. Skid
Heyworth (Alumni Assoc Exec VP) and his wife, Maria, joined us along with
Kristin Yale, Chapter Support Coordinator and Tonya White, Communications
SC was well represented at the event. Congressman Joe Wilson, 3rd District -
Lexington, came as a guest of Monty Felix '70, along with SC Attorney
General, Alan Wilson. And Ike McLeese, President of the Columbia Chamber of
Commerce attended with his wife, Sue.
Needless to say, our 75 +attendees were delighted to have so many USNA
leaders join us for the evening. It takes a special event (or an away
event!) to get folks of this caliber in the room at the same time given busy
schedules. We all know that they came together with us last night for both
reasons. They were away at a special event.
Our thanks to Mike Kehoe '71, who organized the dinner and served as MC and
