Following the previous year’s success in the Falcon Foundation Program (in which R-MA Falcon Scholars George Beals and Carissa Vaccaro earned appointments to and are now at the United States Air Force Academy, a.k.a. USAFA), Randolph-Macon Academy welcomed five Falcon Scholars for the 2013-2014 school year. This year’s Falcon Scholars include Patrick Coleman from Delaware, Jordan Wiggins from Ohio, Naji Bseiso from California, Matthew Sefton from Illinois, and Jewel Davidson from Virginia. Randolph-Macon Academy’s faculty and staff are thrilled to congratulate them, as all five students have received their appointments to the U.S. Air Force Academy for the 2014-15 school year!
The Falcon Scholarship Program is a non-profit organization established in 1958 to provide scholarships to junior college or private preparatory schools for motivated young people seeking admission to USAFA and a career in the Air Force. Only seven schools in the US are designated as Falcon Schools.
Randolph-Macon Academy (R-MA), founded in 1892, is a college-preparatory, coeducational day and boarding school for students in grades 6 through 12. Students in grades 9-12 participate in R-MA’s 91st Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) and have the option to participate in a unique flight program. R-MA is affiliated with the United Methodist Church and is located in Front Royal, VA. It is one of only seven schools in the U.S. designated as a Falcon Foundation School.
