New names for ECC3 and ECC4... they are named from the school kids who entered a contest and the names were narrowed down to the most popular from over 6000 votes. The presentation was done today. ECC3 was named Honor from the Antietam Elementary school in Washington DC metro area and ECC4 was named Courage by the Bren Mar Park elementary school. Thanks to the kids for the great names!
