LTC Paul Gillette ’70 Returns to Alumni Office

Missouri Military Academy is announcing the hire of LTC Paul Gillette, US Army (Ret.), MMA class of 1970, as an Alumni Relations and Annual Fund Manager. LTC Gillette will work to engage MMA alumni and grow support for the Academy.

The hire came about when current alumni manager Terry Logue ’72 announced that he would be reducing his hours to part time. Rather than replace Mr. Logue, the Academy created a job sharing situation in which both Gillette and Logue will work part time.

“This is a situation that works well for both of our alumni, and works especially well for MMA, since we have not one, but two very dedicated alumni on staff,” said Group Director Christine Smith.

LTC Gillette retired from MMA in 2009 after serving the Academy in several capacities for 15 years, including as a development officer. He retired from the U.S. Army as a Lieutenant Colonel prior to returning to his alma mater. Since his retirement, though, he has not been able to say goodbye to his Academy, often working part time as a sub and lending a hand in facilities.

LTC Gillette began work September 3, and will be on staff Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week. His email address is
