MMA Presents Check to the Sesler Family in Joplin

On Tuesday, June 7, MMA Director of Alumni Relations and Executive Officer Lt. Col. Jim Medley, along with MMA Director of Advancement Dan Fowler, traveled to Joplin, Mo. to present a check and other donations to alumnus Guy ’60 and his wife Sabra Sesler on behalf of the MMA community.  The Seslers lost their home and belongings in the tornado that leveled much of Joplin in May, so MMA quickly sent out a call for help to alumni, faculty, staff and families. Within two weeks, the Academy collected clothing and more than $7,000 in cash contributions.

 The Battalion Commander for the class of 1960, Guy Sesler served his country as a sniper in Vietnam. Sesler and his wife Sabra both suffered injuries during the storm that leveled their home. The Seslers did not have insurance.  “The Sesler family is overwhelmed with gratitude,” said Lt. Col. Medley. “Dan and I were proud to represent the MMA community as we presented these generous contributions.”  There is still time to contribute to the effort. 100 percent of contributions are turned over to the family.

Checks payable to the Guy Sesler Fund can be mailed to the Guy Sesler Fund, c/o MMA, 204 N. Grand St., Mexico, Mo., 65265.  Donate online via credit card to the Guy Sesler Fund.
