SCUBA Program Extended into 2012-2013 School Year

Missouri Military Academy is offering a new program for students in the fall.

MMA cadets will be able to get an education in SCUBA diving.  The program, coordinated by Assistant Commandant Mitch Moffitt, went through a trial phase during New ERA Summer School.  Moffitt received approval to offer the program to cadets during the 2012-2013 school year.

Moffitt is currently instructing New ERA Summer School students in SCUBA, but will continue the program by educating cadets beginning in the fall.
