Welcome To The West Point Society of Central Florida
The West Point Society of Central Florida exists to serve alumni, ex-cadets and friends of The United States Military Academy living in Central Florida as well as those visiting the area. The purpose of the society is to provide a networking platform for those associated with the Academy, provide news, information, and to further the ideals and promote the welfare of the USMA.
The West Point Association visited the Coalition For the Homeless in Central Florida on July 16th to learn more about the organization, it's mission and also it's support for veteran's. Both Marc Angle '99 (pictured left) gave a short presentation as well as Brent Trotter (pictured right). Brent is the president of the organization and gave a full tour of the center. Brent was extremely forthcoming in answering the many questions he received from our Association members. Through this visit more than $3,000 was committed to the coalition from West Point Association members.
Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida, a private nonprofit organization, is the largest provider of homeless services in Central Florida.
The West Point Parent's Club hosted a Hail and Farewell to celebrate the USMA Class of 2015 graduates and the USMA Class of 2019 cadet candidates. The event was held on June 6th at 11AM at The Harvest Bible Chapel in Windermere. Pictured to the left are Shirley (2015) and Frank Albritton ('83), the proud father.
Scott Holmgren (pictured right) , the retiring Parent's Club President spoke as well as Mike Starks (bottom) who is taking the reins as President of the West Point Parent's Club this year. The club is a very active and many parents stay involved well after their kids have graduated and pinned on their bars. This speaks very well of the group and the support they provide ot each other as they watch their kids navigate their four years on the Hudson.
The West Point Parents Club of Central Florida purpose is to foster an environment that builds strong connections between parents, cadets, and graduates of West Point. For more information on the club Click Here to go to their website.
The West Point Association held a dinner at Christner's Steakhouse on April 25th. It was a small gathering and our guest speaker was Conrad Taylor ('73). The night began very informally as we all got the chance to catch up with each other since many of us had not gotten together since Football season ended. We had a great room and the food was excellent.
After dinner, Conrad read passages from his book and we began a discussion about his journey. What made this evening special was not just hearing from Contad but Ona, his wife. Ona chimed in and brought her own view of their special journey and we all enjoyed the conversation with the author and also enjoyed a lot of laughs during the discussion.
Last year, Conrad Taylor ’73, captured a fourth award for his book, PATH to FREEDOM: My Story of Perseverance. Last year it won "Honorable Mention" in the Readers' Favorite 2014 International Book Competition, which attracted more than 3,000 entries.
PATH to FREEDOM: My Story of Perseverance offers a ringside seat to the cultural trauma of emigration, the unique experience that is West Point, the personal side of Cold-War-era geopolitics, and the mayhem of Third World politics. The view is nostalgic for some, shocking to many, and enlightening for others.
