2011 Distinguished Graduate Awards

This message is being sent to the U.S. Naval Academy Board of Trustees, the U.S. Naval Academy Board of Directors and to Class, Chapter and Parent Club leadership.

We are pleased to announce that four U.S. Naval Academy alumni were chosen by the Naval Academy Alumni Association as the 2011 recipients of the Distinguished Graduate Award. Congratulations to Rear Admiral Robert H. Shumaker '56, USN (Ret.); Dr. Bradford W. Parkinson '57; Lieutenant General Matthew T. Cooper '58, USMC (Ret.); and Mr. Corbin A. McNeill '62.
Each year, we honor distinguished graduates because of their demonstrated and unselfish commitment to a lifetime of service, their personal character, and the significant contributions they have made to the Navy and Marine Corps or as leaders in industry or government. The 2011 Distinguished Graduate Award Ceremony will be held on Friday, 25 March 2011. We will provide additional background on our newest Distinguished Graduates in Shipmate magazine, WaveTops and our website in the near future.
Congratulations to the 2011 Distinguished Graduates!

Byron Marchant '78
President, U. S. Naval Academy Alumni Association
