Greetings, FUMA Cadets, Staff, Faculty and Parents! 

Wow, what a week it has been! My staff and I have had the pleasure of hosting the Board of Trustees this week. We are proud of this prestigious Academy and have reflected on our goals and look to continue to build our future with the guidance of our Board. To top this week off, Fork Union Military Academy recorded its 13thfirst round NFL Draft pick last night. Christian Darrisaw, an alumnus from the PG Class of 2017, was the 23rdoverall pick to the Minnesota Vikings. What a way to end the month of April. Go Vikings!



As we head into our final month of the 2020-21 school year, be thankful of where you come from and what God has in store for your future. Finish this year strong!


Philippians 4:6-7

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.




Best regards,
Colonel David L. Coggins, USMC (Ret.)
Fork Union Military Academy
