Here In DC

We arrived this morning to the beautiful Gaylord Hotel in National Harbour. It is a great location 20 mins from DC with it's own little city surrounding the Hotel.

Time has gone by so quickly, it seems like only yesterday I was elected vice president...where did [...]

I must also commend our staff who continue to do a fantastic job running this academy from the direction that is set by the Board. Ed Simeone and his staff are just simply amazing with their expertise and passion [...]
