NEWPORT, R.I. – Hundreds of employees and their children — or grandchildren, nieces or nephews — roamed the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Division Newport campus on June 23 for Bring a Child to Work Day, the annual event with dozens of demonstrations designed to give kids a glimpse of what their family members do for work.
“I want to welcome everyone to Bring a Child to Work Day. We have a great schedule of events today as you go around,” Division Newport Commanding Officer Capt. Chad Hennings said to a crowd of more than 100 employees and children gathered around the command flagpole just before the start of morning colors. “I hope you have a good time here and see a little bit about what your moms and dads do while they’re here at NUWC Division Newport.”
