Gift to aid academy's ethics training program

January 25, 2001|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Lockheed Martin Corp. will donate $25,000 to the U.S. Naval Academy Foundation to help support the school's Center for the Study of Military Ethics, foundation officials said yesterday.

Founded in 1998, the center's goal is to enhance ethical training at the academy through "education, research and reflection."

The academy superintendent, Vice Adm. John R. Ryan, said the gift will "help raise the bar of excellence" among students and "create an environment for midshipmen that is stimulating and challenging."

It is the second gift in the past two years from Lockheed to support the academy's ethics program.
