Subj: LETTER TO ALUMNI REGARDING ALUMNI WEEKEND 2021

Dear Fishburne Family,

I trust this letter finds you, your families and loved ones safe and well.

While we value Fishburne’s rich traditions, we value the safety of our Fishburne community
more. As a result, we have come to the conclusion to cancel both the 2021 Colonel Young
Brigade Dinner and Alumni Weekend.

This decision comes after months of deliberation, assessment and discussions with the
Fishburne-Hudgins Educational Foundation trustees. The persistent concerns over the pandemic,
despite the recent introduction of vaccines, are still too prominent to ignore.

We are hopeful with the introduction of the recent vaccines we will all experience a return to
normalcy. In the interim we are working with the Alumni Association to plan a homecoming
event for the fall of 2021. More details will be forthcoming as the plan comes together.

I remorsefully deliver this decision. Fishburne is built on a sense of brotherhood. We look
forward to a time we can again host all of you along with the cadets and their families, in a
celebration of this amazing school on the hill. As soon as an on campus event is deemed safe,
rest assured, we will welcome all of you with open arms.

Respectfully,

M. E. Black CAPT USN (Ret)
Superintendent
Fishburne Military School
