AFCEA Funds Microscope Purchase

Dean Maria Green Cowles recently accepted a check for $2,500 from Steve Lamberson, president of the Frederick Chapter of AFCEA. Lamberson presented the check in support of the Hood Graduate School’s  partnership with the USAMRMC STEM and GEMS programs.  The money will be used to purchase a Celestron LCD deluxe digital microscope for the GEMS summer youth programs.
