WPSA Founders Day update & AOG Virtual Founders Day

Dear WPSA Members,

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the West Point Society of Atlanta has made the difficult choice to postpone our in-person Founders Day dinner this year. That said, we’ve secured a new date for our Founders Day dinner: the event is now tentatively scheduled for October 9, 2021, so please mark it on your calendar now! More details will follow closer to the date of the event.

In the meantime, we wanted to make you aware that the West Point AOG is holding a virtual Founders Day event via Zoom on March 16th from 6:30 – 8:30 PM. WPSA currently has about 50 members attending. You can register for the event at this link via the West Point AOG (note: registration requires signing into your account on Sallyport, or registering if you don’t have an account). For any questions, please reach out to (845-446-1612).

Thanks for all you do to represent the Long Gray Line in the Atlanta area. Stay healthy and we look forward to seeing you via Zoom on March 16th!

Go Army,

West Point Society of Atlanta postponing events

Dear WPSA Members,

In case you haven’t heard, we have to postpone or modify some future events due to COVID-19 concerns and our venues’ new rules/availability.

1) Founders Day is postponed for 2020 (no longer on 29 Aug as previously published) and will be held next year as scheduled (20 March 2021).

2) Our planned TopGolf event is also postponed from Sept to October. The new date is now 15 Oct 2020 at 6 PM.

3) Our Happy Hours are planned to resume in Oct if we can find a venue large enough to meet social distancing guidelines. If you have ideas, please let us know!

Thank you for your understanding. We do have a slate of virtual events planned so stay tuned!

Send Off Video

Send Off Video to Georgia new cadets headed to Service Academies

Dear Grads and Friends of West Point,

This year, we couldn’t send off our latest Georgia new cadets to West Point and the other service academies like we do normally at the State Capitol Building and the Capital City Club.

Therefore, we crafted this video with some special friends to wish these great Americans well as they embark on their journeys. Please feel free to share widely! Enjoy!

Special Thanks You to Ken Konstanzer ’80, Jan Heath and Will Frampton of McLeod Media ( for coordinating guests and editing this video.

2020 President’s Letter

We have Grown!

Dear Fellow Grads,

I’m proud to be leading our Alumni in the ATL area in my second year as President. I want to thank our Board and my Officers for finishing up a phenomenal year. These individuals donated precious time to ensuring our organization’s success.

This past year, we had some goals: throw a great Army-GSU Tailgate, grow membership, and improve our career development activities. I’m pleased to report we accomplished every goal except one: unfortunately, COVID-19 was not cooperative with our Founders Day — we had lined up Ambassador Andrew Young to speak! We will continue with FD next year.

There is more to accomplish. In the coming year, our focus will be strengthening the base – our younger grads and helping them career wise whether it be finding a job or helping them get their next business venture off the ground.

I look forward to stewarding our organization into 2021. Grip Hands!

Samir Patel ‘08
