The Horatio Alger Association was pleased to host the first in its series of State of the Association meetings. The event took place in conjunction with The Tenors' concert at the Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts in Vienna, Virginia, on June 21, 2013. At the meeting, Members, current Scholars and Alumni had the opportunity to meet and learn more about current activities of the Horatio Alger Association. Participants also enjoyed brief remarks from The Tenors themselves. Gratitude is extended to Members R. James Nicholson ('00) and Anthony Welters ('98) for their inspiring remarks on the Association’s behalf. The Association is also grateful to, National Scholar, Sara L. Prendergast ('08) for sharing her story with the audience.
