Central Region Trustee Email dated February 11, 2021

Posted: 2/11/2021

Fellow Central Region Alumni,

Thank you all for your support in re-electing me to a second and final three-year term on the Board of Trustees. I am proud and honored to serve you.  I actively participate in three arenas on the Board of Trustees; the Executive Committee, the Admissions Committee and the Nominating committee. I promise you that I will do my best to answer your questions and represent you during the next 2 ½ years.

The past four months have been eventful as well as unusual with numerous virtual meetings conducted to execute and complete our mission.  We met virtually in October to consider and recognize Alumni Chapters who have distinguish themselves over the last two years.  I take great pleasure in congratulating our Columbus, Knoxville-Oak Ridge, Texas Gulf Coast, and Tulsa Alumni Chapters for being recognized as Other Distinguished Chapters.  

The East Tennessee Class of 2025 candidate cycle has been encouraging considering the stand up of a new on-line candidate admissions portal and BGIS system.  Please note Class of 2025 candidates have until 28 February to complete their USNA Application. 

The following link is to the Minutes and President’s Reports from our December 10th, 2020 Virtual Board of Trustees Meeting. VADM Buck spoke to the Board of Trustees during the December 10th meeting and his discussion focused on the state of the Naval Academy during the pandemic. On the same Alumni site page is a summary report of the Special Committee on Alumni Culture, Diversity and Inclusion and standup of the Ad Hoc committee of BOT.

Alumni Association Board of Trustees     

Thank you for your support. I wish you and your loved ones the very best in 2021.

Stay safe. 

Have a Great Navy/Marine Corps Day!


CDR Richard Cataldi ’69, USN (Ret.)
