New Quarters Dedicated
The Mitchell Quarters was dedicated at Riverside on Commencement Weekend, May 17-18. The quarters will serve as the home for Riverside's president and as an entertainment venue for alumni, cadets, parents, and the community. Alumnus Abe Mitchell, '52, was instrumental in envisioning the home and a key financial supporter of the project. Having the RMA president on campus is also important from a security stand point for a boarding school. Read Mr. Mitchell's remarks at the dedication here, and read the newspaper article from the Gainesville Times.

Hitting the Mark
Marksmanship is a Riverside tradition which continues today as the rifle team competes in the Georgia High School Association.
Thanks to alumnus Ron Fenner, '66, who values the skills marksmanship builds in a young man, RMA is now signed up with the Scholastic Shooting Trust Fund that will give three dollars to Riverside for every dollar donated this calendar year. The money raised will go to the Riverside rifle team to supply needed items not covered by the budget. (Funds may not be used to purchase fire arms.)
Mr. Fenner has made a gift to the Scholastic Shooting Trust Fund in support of Riverside and urges other alumni to do the same. His other alma mater, The Citadel, has raised over $50,000 through the program for their rifle team. For more information on how to donate, click here.
