On June 9, the Keydet Club held the 2023 Jeff Morgan ’80 Leadership Outing in recognition of the contributions of VMI athletics’ outstanding supporters.

The day began with golf and tennis at the Lexington Golf & Country Club, followed by sporting clays at the Quail Ridge Sporting Club. While a handful of 104 daytime participants played tennis and participated in the shooting, the most interest was in the golf tournament, with 23 teams competing to be this year’s leadership outing golf champions.

In the evening, more than 160 attendees and their guests arrived at Marshall Hall for dinner and remarks from Jim Miller, athletic director; Danny Rocco, head football coach; and Bland Massie ’77, Keydet Club Board of Governors president.

Each year, this event connects and honors those with a shared passion for VMI athletics and shows the very real impact they have on the program. “This event brings together a group that carries a common love and passion for VMI athletics,” said Andrew Deal ’12, Keydet Club chief operating officer. “The Jeff Morgan ’80 Leadership Outing provides us with the opportunity to promote the exciting things taking place amongst our cadet-athletes and coaches, reinforcing the impact and difference their support makes. Our team takes great pride in recognizing and thanking our generous supporters.”
