ORAU Donation Helps Bring 278th Regiment Home for the Holidays

OAK RIDGE, Tenn.—Andy Page, Oak Ridge Associated Universities' (ORAU) president and CEO, and Jackie Nichols, president of the Anderson County Chamber, hold a check for a $1,500 donation from ORAU to the committee of local organizations that has teamed up to bus the 278th Armored Calvary Regiment of the Tennessee National Guard home for Christmas this year. ORAU matched donations made by B&W Y-12 and Wackenhut Services. The Anderson County government and the city of Clinton also made donations, which allowed the committee to reach and exceed its $5,700 goal.
