Terwilliger Center Showcases USNA Physical Mission

Many years ago, J. Ronald Terwilliger ’63, a Naval Academy Distinguished Graduate, told Athletic Director Chet Gladchuk about his desire to recognize the physical mission of the Naval Academy in a meaningful, tangible way. After much brainstorming and back-and-forth discussions, the two men settled on creating a facility that told the story through artifacts, memorabilia and interactive video displays. That facility, the Terwilliger Center for Student-Athletes, has opened its doors with thanks to Terwilliger and a number of other key donors. “If a picture says a thousand words, this facility says a million words,” said Gladchuk.
