"Great schools are not defined by the mission statement on the wall … but by the adults in the building who are on a mission." – Danny Steele
MMA President BG Richard V. Geraci shared the above quote in a meeting with faculty and residential faculty officers on August 21, 2019. He emphasized the importance of structure, discipline and accountability – hallmarks of the MMA experience – in order to achieve the Academy's mission to help cadets take command of their lives and fulfill their potential.
Leading by example, President BG Geraci shared his guidance for cadets with the group:
- Know the standards.
- Live by the standards.
- Correct those who ignore the standards.
- Help your fellow cadets who are having trouble meeting the standards.
- Expect to be held accountable.
