OUTREACH

 
James E. Duckworth Regional School Visit
 

On November 18, 2014, during “American Education Week,” we seized the opportunity to engage in a community outreach service and celebrate public education by visiting James E. Duckworth Regional School located in Beltsville, MD. During our visit we distributed approximately 50 backpacks with school supplies, toured the school, and discussed future opportunities to support the students and faculty at Duckworth. We were adopted into the Duckworth family and given t-shirts with the school logo as a gift and thank you cards created by the students.
