News from our Accounting Department, Diane Houser: Diane’s son Nick who is a senior at La Plata High School has been accepted to Valley Forge Military College on a foundation scholarship from the United States Naval Academy and also has an academic acceptance to The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. He also obtained a Congressional Nomination from Steney Hoyer recommending him to the US Merchant Marine Academy in New York State. He is still in the process of making a decision so once Nick makes his decision we’ll be sure to let everyone know! Either way this is quite an accomplishment and we’d like to say congratulations to Diane and her family, you must all be so proud!
