2016 - 2017 Teacher of the Year
For the last 17 years, SFC Richard Kurtz has been an institution at Massanutten Military Academy. This year he was recognized with the Teacher of the Year Award which is voted on by faculty, staff, and students. Remembered fondly by alumni and always there to encourage cadets, we couldn't be more grateful for his presence here at MMA.
SFC Kurtz is a JROTC Instructor here at the school who received his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Excelsior College while serving twenty-four years in the United States Army as a combat engineer and then airborne infantryman. He says that he enjoys the chance he gets here to prepare young adults for their future.
2016-2017 Staff Member of the Year
Mr. Justin Elshafie currently serves as a TAC officer for the male barracks. He attended Shenandoah University where he studied Political Science and Criminal Justice. Currently he is enrolled at Lord Fairfax Community College and studying the Administration of Justice. He is also a graduate of MMA of the class of 2014. However, his ties to the school do not end there as he is also the son of the Dean of Academics, and his fiancee, Alumna Tristin Huffman, also works at the school. He loves working here because he has the chance to give back to his Alma Mater and help teach the cadets what MMA is all about.

It is with a heavy heart that we note the passing of Senor Luis Rincon. After a short battle with cancer, Senor Rincon passed away on April 29, 2017. A veteran of the Air Force, he was a dedicated and loved member of the faculty for 8 years and his loss has been felt throughout the corps. Our condolences go out to his family.
