Annapolis, M.D.  – The Midshipmen Action Group held a lunchtime meeting at the Alumni House just outside Gate Three of the Naval Academy on Thursday, October 3. Project leaders presented in front of MAG leadership, members of the Maryland Naval ROTC schools, members of the Brigade of Midshipmen, and community partners. The focus included ongoing projects, upcoming events, and community members interested in establishing a new partnership with the Naval Academy.

Currently the Brigade is participating in a community food drive entitled “Harvest for the Hungry,” coordinated by Midshipman 1/C Soon Kwon and Midshipman 2/C Samantha Himlin. The food drive, supported by both the Superintendent of the Naval Academy and the Commandant of Midshipmen, will last until November 3rd. Both Midshipman Kwon and Midshipman Himlin addressed the group at the meeting last week.

Additionally, the Midshipmen Action Group hosted members of the NROTC from Maryland schools, including George Washington University and Johns Hopkins University, who introduced Naval Academy midshipmen to the possibility of a future partnership. Midshipman Bond, of George Washington University, introduced the group to a variety of their projects, which are run through an organization entitled the Trident Society.

Other midshipmen project leaders and community partners spoke about their projects as well, updating the audience to the progress. At the end of the meeting, a significant percentage of midshipmen stayed behind to speak with the community partners and establish communication networks for future projects. 

Very Respectfully,

Britney Thornton
