Reunion Weekend

By: Casey Robinson on Apr 14, 2016 | Categories: General


This past weekend was one of great fun, comradery and reminiscing as members of the CMA Class of 1966 celebrated their 50th reunion. A few members from the classes of 1964, 1965, 1967, and 1968 were also in attendance.

The chairmen of the reunion committee were Rick Rygg and Dan Singletary. A special thanks to Rick’s wife, Zelma, who worked for two years to gather all information possible to contact alumni to make the weekend a memorable one.

Alumni arrived on Thursday, and attended the CMA baseball game. On Friday afternoon alumni and their spouses checked in on campus before going to the evening dinner at the Armory Steakhouse in downtown Camden.

On Saturday morning, they gathered at the Carlisle House for a campus tour. After eating lunch in the dining hall, the alumni were given a special presentation of the Blackjacks drill team, followed by a parade of the corps of cadets. The alumni stood proud as they watched the cadets. One alumnus commented that they didn’t have the white pants “back in their day.”

Special thanks to the alumni who attended and made the day memorable for all. CMA welcomes all alumni to stop by the campus if they are in the area.
