Sean Coffey recently shared with the class officers the final numbers for our 40th Class Gift (all gifts donated before December, 31, 2018, were included in our totals). As a reminder, our gift provided funds to support the following four areas:
- Support to the USNA Admissions Office for the STEM summer camps
- Support for the Academy’s Center for Ethical Leadership
- Support for Athletic Excellence
- Support for the Naval Academy Fund
Clearly ’78 has a generous heart. Not only did we meet our goal of raising $1,500,000; we raised over 150% of goal by raising $2,260,567. There is something else for which we should all be very proud; our class participation rate was 50%, well above the fleet average of around 25%. THANK YOU, ’78!
I want to also thank Sean for his efforts in leading us to this goal. ATTA-BOY!
Wishing you all the best in 2019…
President, USNA Class of 1978
