As an outgrowth of the senior military officers planning team which took a seed of an idea, a small pilot project and the voluntary service of a retired military man, the Military Magnet Advisory Board began it services to the school. Led by General Henry Doctor and the first members listed below, the MMA Advisory Panel, as it was first called,  met quarterly to review and advise the school administration and the central office staff of the school's progress and to ensure that the military integrity is maintained along with the academic emphasis.

The members observed classes, met with school administrators and central staff support teams, participated in the military exercises with the students while onsite and attended the annual summer camp for the new enrollees. They provided examples for the students and the MMA family as men and women of valor and professional achievement expected from the leaders of the 21st century.

Recently, the Military Magnet Advisory Board was reorganized under new leadership to continue its original purpose. Major General Abraham Turner is the current chairman. The board meets quarterly and as needed to provide the support necessary to encourage and enhance the success of MMA.
