NEIGHBORS

November 01, 1994|By NATALIE HARVEY

Educational partnerships have proved to be beneficial to students and their corporate partners. This year the National Security Agency (NSA) has teamed up with Steven Forest Elementary School.

It's especially nice since NSA will be represented by third-grade student Neal Willoughby's father, Neal. Students will be provided academic support in mathematics and science.

First-graders at the school will meet their personal representative from Bell Atlantic on Nov. 10.

In cooperation with the county's Office of Emergency Services, the students will learn how and when to use 911 as well as important safety rules.
