Letter from the Director

Happy summer, NSF! Thank you very much for your patience as we organized and hosted a very successful Youth Security Forum (YSF) in late May. The event successfully engaged Washoe County School District students in discussion on a wide range of national security topics.

We are very grateful to our YSF sponsors who generously supported our effort to encourage a new generation of national security-informed citizenry.
