A Message from Jeff Tisor '85
It is my privilege to have been elected by the Alumni Board to be President of your Association, ANAAA. Our Association is led by an international, multigenerational group of Alumni that meet several times a year to develop policies, projects and programs for the benefit of The Academy, Alumni and the Academy’s community.
The main areas we are concentrating on as a Board are the following: Development Projects, Mentoring Programs, Alumni Outreach, Our History, and Tradition Preservation. All of the above are under the guidance of an Alumni Board Committee.
All Committees report back to the Alumni Board which is committed to working in partnership with the Academy’s Administration and Trustees to chart a path for our success as an Association. To that end, the Academy’s Development Department, which supports the Alumni Association, is making some changes within their roles and responsibilities to better serve the needs of the Alumni Community and to advance our shared goals.
Alumni Board Committees are open to any Alumnus that would like to participate. If you are interesting in becoming involved, please contact me by email. Additionally, after each meeting of the Alumni Board of Directors the minutes of the meetings and action items will be published via a link on the Alumni section of the Academy’s web pages.
During Alumni Weekend in May of each year a brief recap of your Associations activities will be presented and discussed at out Annual Meeting. In addition, at the same meeting an election of Directors for the Alumni Board will be held. There are openings every year for the Alumni Board and every Alumnus in good standing is encouraged to participate.
Our past is captured in our lifelong friendships and experiences. Gentlemen, the history and traditions of the Academy are ours to preserve and perpetuate.
Please feel free to contact me or any of your Alumni
Directors and Class Agents with questions, or to “get involved”!

Would You Like to be a Class Agent?
Alumni, we are always happy to hear from you and to reconnect you with your friends from school.
We are always working to track down Alumni we haven't heard from in years. Believe it or not, we've reconnected with over 1300 Academy Alumni in the past few years.
Are you interested in helping us find even more? You can do so by becoming a Class Agent. As an agent, you will be the point of contact between your class and the Academy. You'll help us improve communications to Alumni and give us your input on special events like Alumni Weekend. We welcome all who are interested to get involved.
For more information, contact Drew Vandergrift, Alumni Affairs Manager, by e-mail or at 760.547.5277.
We look forward to hearing from you!
