Academy alumnus Anthony D’Onofrio met with Academy faculty and staff, including Dr. Stephen Butler, Dean of Academic Affairs and Matthew Cope, Director of Operations, on Jan. 20 to discuss the Academy’s role as one of six transition points during the 263-mile Gulf Coast Interstate Relay race from New Orleans, La. to Pensacola, Fla. The Academy will also help mark a portion of the course for the Relay.

As a transition point, the Academy will open its doors to both runners and cyclists participating in the race, which will take place April 4-6.
