From the Class President – Nearing Last Call for Alumni Center Plankowners


“Thanks” to all of you that have donated to our Class Project supporting the building of the new Alumni Association and Foundation Center. So far, we have raised $679,000 of our $750,000 goal with pledges from 238 donors.

Special thanks goes to our 43 plankowners. Your gifts will be recognized by placing your names on the “Plankowners” Wall in the new Alumni Center as part of your legacy for your family and friends to see. Additionally, your name will be listed online in the Association and Foundation’s virtual plankowners’ wall. Your support has been critical to building this much needed facility.

If you are still considering becoming a plankowner, please don’t wait much longer as time is running out. The opportunity to become a plankowner ends on December 31, 2022. Becoming a plankowner requires a donation of $12,500, or a pledge of $2,500 for five years. For those of you that are President Circle members, you can make your pledge for the Alumni Center and that also will be counted as your commitment for the President’s Circle.  

If you want to become a plankowner, please go to and make your pledge. If you need assistance, or you have questions, call or email Dan Quattrini ‘81, USNA Alumni Association & Foundation Director of Class Giving, at 952-210-5533 or and he will assist you.

Thanks for everyone’s support.

Fair winds…


Glen Woods

President, USNA Class of 1978
