Three members of the Culver Academies faculty and staff were honored for 25 years of service during the May 6 all-school meeting. Tim Montgomery, the counselor for Troop B, dining services employee Brian Fisher, and Humanities instructor Brad Trevathan received a standing ovation during their induction as honorary members of the Culver Legion.
Making the presentation of the Culver Ring, was Director of Alumni Development Alan Loehr, who was filling in for Maj. Gen. Richard Sherlock ’76, (USA Ret.), president of The Legion.
“Our nation’s best institutions are built upon the efforts of great teachers, coaches, and counselors, and The Academies’ alumni and alumnae are formed, oftentimes, in the image of those who have guided and influenced their Culver days.” Loehr told the inductees and the audience. “This includes all individuals whose contributions have advanced the purposes and objectives of The Legion and Culver’s mission. The Culver Legion is privileged to recognize your contributions by offering the Culver Ring.”
Montgomery joined The Academies staff in 1990 as a tactical officer in the Military Activities office. He moved to the counselor’s position in 2001 and is currently in Troop B.
Fisher was hired to work in the dish room of the dining hall in 1990. He is now a fixture in The Shack, working evenings and weekends.
Trevathan came to Culver as a history instructor in 1990. He served as an associate director of College Advising from 1993 to 2001 and has taught ninth-grade Humanities since 2003.
With their 25 years of service, Montgomery, Fisher, and Trevathan will also have their names inscribed on the faculty and staff benches located on the Manuel Green.
