BAE Systems Continuing Support

Last week, Brian Hayden, Operations Director for BAE Systems’ Integrated Technical Solutions presented a $1,000 check in continuing support of Historic Sotterley, Inc. to Janice L. Briscoe, Esq., Sotterley Board of Trustees President (right) and Nancy Easterling, Sotterley Executive Director (left).

Recognizing that Sotterley Plantation is an invaluable educational resource within the Southern Maryland community, BAE Systems is committed to continuing their support. Both their In-Kind and financial contributions over the years have had a tremendous impact, especially with much-needed critical projects. Things would look a lot different around the plantation without their help - and not in a good way.

"This check is the most recent example of the significant and generous support that BAE provides to Historic Sotterley, Inc. We are so grateful and honored by all that BAE does for Sotterley and our entire community," said Ms. Briscoe.

After our former Museum Shop wall collapsed last year, only three weeks prior to the start of the season, we needed to move the Museum Shop and Visitor Check-in to a new location. It was decided that the best place would be the Knott House, which was not in the best condition. BAE employees descended upon the site and played a huge role in achieving a truly remarkable renovation!
