Commandant’s Corner - February 13th, 2017
Greetings Seahawk Nation!
Well, we could wait until later in the report to boast about the staff’s prodigious (SAT
word of the day) victory over the cadets in Friday’s pep rally basketball game, but where’s the
fun in that?!? DMA’s Staff once again took care of business, and as the final horn sounded, it
was the Staff who raised the coveted trophy (much to the chagrin of the Regiment). Of course,
after the game, when the pain set in and the joints seized up, it was a different story (and
probably not worth it), but nonetheless we remain undefeated in any and all contests versus the
cadets. They can try again in the spring! Okay, enough gloating. It was a great time and we hope
the cadets enjoyed the afternoon as much as we did! Also, a big shout out to Mrs. Watkins (the
artist formerly known as Ms. Carson) and the DMA Dance Team for choreographing an amazing
anti-bullying dance performance which contained a very powerful and meaningful message.
Check it out HERE!
Here is your “Need to Know” brief:
DMA was informed on Friday that five more of our cadets were awarded Army ROTC
scholarships! Congratulations to the following cadets on their absolutely exceptional DMA
careers, work ethic and competitive nature, all of which enabled them to earn such
prestigious scholarship opportunities. They are: Regimental Commander Captain Zen
Taylor, Executive Officer Commander Tajaii Furrowh, Lieutenant Commander Marcus
Brooks, Lieutenant Commander Jacob Hudson and Chief Petty Officer Padraig Hahn. Many
of these cadets are still waiting on or have received Academy nominations as well. The
Seahawk Nation is extremely proud to call all of you our own. As we receive word on
others we will certainly make it known. BRAVO ZULU!
Congratulations to sophomore cadet Petty Officer 2nd Class Justin Malone who has been
accepted to the National Student Leadership Conference on Medicine and Health Care
from June 25th to July 3rd at American University. Keep up the great work Justin!

Our Community Service day was held last Monday, and continues to bring positive
attention to our cadets. We have received many emails from community members who
our cadets assisted commenting on the wonderful job and attitude they had while giving
back. It is awesome to hear and should make all of us feel proud of the young men and
women we are so lucky to be around on a daily basis.
