I am very excited about this project not just because of its many substantial benefits to our work at Meritus and its positive impact on the health of Washington County and the surrounding areas, but also because of its hugely positive social and economic impact on Washington County. Specifically, we have always needed more young professionals and pre-professional people in our community, and this new school will dramatically grow that underrepresented demographic, which will in turn encourage more young professional people in other professions and industries to live and work here as well. We also hope of course that some of those who train here will stay here once they have experienced the many benefits we enjoy.
