Turning to Spring and Oral History

Hello and Howdy! As we come to the end of February, I'm looking to Spring and all the amazing things that MMI has planned. This weekend's Knight-Fox Challenge will kick off with a parade this afternoon. [Pictures to follow] Alumni Weekend is set for April; and before you know it, Cadets will be graduating and Summer will sweep through the town. If you have a chance to stop in the Archives, please do. There's always something changing!

The Oral History Project is kicking off this week when I sit down with my first interviewee. I'll share details in March - and give you information about how you can be involved in preserving the stories of MMI! Any questions are welcome.

Congratulations are in Order!

Congratulations to Cadet Dawit Solomon for receiving the Albert Cesarine Scholarship! The Perry County Herald says:

"The Albert Cesarine, Sr. Memorial Scholarship was established in memory of Mr. Albert Cesarine, Sr. by Mr. and Mrs. Albert Cesarine, III, of New Castle, Delaware. Albert T. Cesarine, III is an alumnus of Marion Military Institute's class of 1984. Cadet Dawit Solomon is a 2007 graduate of the MMI Preparatory School. A veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, he returned to MMI in 2009 and enrolled in the Early Commissioning Program to receive his commission as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army, which he will do this spring. Cadet Solomon is the son of Amy Techale and Aman Yohanes of Altanta, Ga." (PCH: Volume VI, Number 24, 3 Feb, 2011 -

Congratulations, Cadet Solomon!

On the Archives. February 2011 Schedule, continued, is every Tuesday and Thursday until the end of the month. I'm working diligently on interesting and exciting projects and Alumni Weekend's festivities. There is much to catalog. I am, as always, looking for information about MMI, Marion and Perry County in general, to enrich the information resources already archived by the MMI Foundation. Let me know if you find something amazing!

Stop in and see what's new in what's old!
