AMP – Alumni Mentoring Program

Posted: 2/18/2016

From Class President Chris Cikanovich —

Dear Classmates:  The USNA Class of ’69 has helped find a solution to a need for mentoring support in the Fleet.   We get a lot of help in identifying problems, but it’s rare to have a group come with a solution, and the funding tail to help solve the problem.  We are very fortunate to have this help from the Class of ’69.  This program, while still relatively new – has yielded some very positive results.  We have over a thousand alumni involved and growing.  The Superintendent has permitted the introduction of this program to our graduating First Class – now that their service selections have been made.  These relationships will be very beneficial in answering questions that our newly graduating 0-1’s will have.

The program is there for our young Officer’s to get help, and for our more experienced Officer’s to give back – by enrolling as Mentors to help get valuable information and shared experiences to our Alumni across the country.

This attachment is an example of what Hampton Roads provided to their membership.

I hope you take advantage of the opportunity to help a young midshipman or junior officer develop their career with the guidance and wisdom from the best Class of ’75.


Chris “Chick” Cikanovich
