WMA MUSEUM BREAKING NEWS

On behalf of the Executive Committee, I bring good news: the Wentworth Military Academy Museum is now DEBT FREE!
It's been three years and four months since our beloved Academy had its final formation. I remember all-too-well the meeting of alumni that took place in the Mess Hall following final parade. When the idea of starting a Museum to honor Wentworth and preserve its legacy was broached, there were many who thought it couldn’t be done. Well, I am pleased to report that not only has it been done, but it is here to stay! Read More

WMA Museum Roof Repair

We trust you and your loved ones are safe and doing well during these continued trying times. COVID-19 continues to impact all of us and our daily lives. While we have suspended all non-essential spending, the Museum can no longer put off some expenses that must be immediately remedied. We have held off on asking for assistance for these repairs as long as we could, but the roof situation will not allow us to delay any further. Read More

Our Plan

visibility

Visualize

This is a three phased operation (acquire, secure, and memorialize) and the intent is for it to be planned and executed simultaneously using four lines of effort (artifact, fundraising, building, technology), with a local “strike force” serving as the reserve for immediate response to support all four LOEs/committees. The endstate is achieved when all requested memorabilia is owned and managed by the WMA Alumni Association, secured in a Muster and display worthy location, and properly financed for long-term memorialization.
