FRESHMAN:  Cadet Thomas McAdoo has been nominated by Mrs. Rosaio for being a conscientious and patient student. He is reflective and observant. He offers assistance without being asked, he is intuitive, and knows when to help a struggling classmate without pretending to "know" it all.  I nominate Thomas McAdoo for the honor of being named Shining Seahawk of the month for the notable impression he has given me after only a few short months of school.  Congratulations Cadet McAdoo! SOPHOMORE:  Cadet Jacqueline Means has been nominated by Senior Chief Williams for being the epitome of leadership, scholarship, and citizenship. As  Platoon Leader,  she  is a passionate leader with a strong determination to lead and help others. She is extremely competitive amongst her peers with a most impressive GPA of 3.25. She is very inquisitive and always looking for better ways to improve not only herself, but others around her.  Congratulations Cadet Means! JUNIOR:  Cadet/Ensign Gavin Lewis has been nominated by Chief Craig.  Gavin is a dedicated, determined and goal oriented cadet who personifies our core values of honor, courage and commitment. His can-do attitude and commitment to excellence is most noteworthy along with his team player approach… regardless of the order or challenge involved. Congratulations Gavin and thank you for all your hard work and dedication… those character traits will serve you well going forward. You are an outstanding ambassador for DMA and a superb example of a “Shining Seahawk!” SENIOR:  Cadet Ali Novotny has been nominated by Mrs. Urquhart.  Ali Novotny epitomizes what it means to be a Shining Seahawk. As a student, she excels in her academics, and as a cadet-athlete, she is a leader on and off the court. But, this is not why Ali has been nominated for this honor. What sets Ali apart and the reason for this nomination are her compassion and kindness. Ali has the ability to make all those around her feel welcome and included at all times. She genuinely cares about her fellow cadets, and sets the example on campus for all others. Ali has made a big impression on the lives that she has touched through the Big-Little Program, Volleyball, and more. She goes out of her way for others and is truly a blessing to so many. I am very grateful to have gotten to know Ali over the past year. Congratulations Cadet Novotony!
Shining Seahawks for September!
FRESHMAN:  Cadet Jaelyn Valentin has been nominated by Senior Chief McClain for exemplifying the three “ships” of DMA. She is always eager to assist the Naval Science department, while going above and beyond in assisting other cadets.  Cadet Valentin completed over 99 hours of community service over the summer, mostly at the VA hospital helping our veterans.   She wears her uniform with pride and is a highly motivated cadet and talented young lady who is wholeheartedly committed to the objectives at DMA.  Congratulations Cadet Valentin! SOPHOMORE:  Cadet Nathan Gearing has been nominated by Mr. Lingenfelter.  Nate has set his goal high, because being in the norm, just doesn't cut it. Working hard is a commitment that Nate has continued into his sophomore year. Leading his entire class this semester in driver education, Nate has consistently pushed himself to achieve excellence in all his classes. Nate is one of those leaders whose actions have spoken volumes. I nominated this fine young leader because he is what DMA consistently looks for year after year in all their cadets. I am proud to have crossed paths along his journey and will be excited to see his outcome here at DMA. Academics - check, Leadership - check, self esteem and discipline - check, self control - mastered. Great job Cadet Gearing! JUNIOR:  Cadet Erin Naughton has been nominated by Ms. Fabian for her dedication, hard work, and commitment to her education.   Erin works hard by always going beyond what is required to make sure she fully comprehends the concepts. She is focused on her work and determined to do her very best in everything she does. Erin is a good and positive role model and a pleasure to have in class. CONGRATULATIONS, Cadet Naughton. SENIOR:  Cadet Erin Walsh has been nominated by Ms. Aunet.  Cadet Walsh has the distinction of being the only cadet in World History to answer every single multiple choice question correctly on the first test! Through her hard work and determination, she has shown that perfection can be achieved. Her positive attitude and willingness to help out on such occasions as Parent Open House, are additional reasons that she is a true example of a Shining Seahawk. I am sure that Cadet Walsh will continue to excel in her final year at DMA. Congratulations Cadet Walsh!
