Vent named chair of Wor. County Junior Achievement Advisory Board

WORCESTER COUNTY–Chad Vent has been elected to serve as the Advisory Board Chair of Worcester County Junior Achievement.
Vent, a certified public accountant and managing partner in the Faw Casson Maryland office, has dedicated time to teaching Junior Achievement programs in the K-12 classrooms, and has assisted with the successful JA Adopt, a school dinner fundraiser.
“I am excited about this opportunity to work with so many people who share the passion I have for Junior Achievement,” said Vent. “I have always thought financial literacy is important and considering today’s economic environment I feel even stronger about educating our youth about financial literacy-a real world subject.”
Vent’s election served to fill the vacancy from outgoing chair Christine Selzer, who served as Worcester Advisory Board Chair for the past three years.
