U.S. Rep. John  Delaney, newly elected representative for Maryland’s 6th District, recently visited Kaplan University-Hagerstown, where he met with graduates, faculty, and one the area’s largest employers in an effort to gain greater insight into local workforce development opportunities and connect with constituents. 

“Constituent service is job one for my office and my staff,” Delaney said. “Since I was sworn in, we’ve been working to assist constituents. Our district offices allow us to be closer to the community and save constituents a long trip into Washington.” 

During his visit, Delaney spoke with Kaplan University-Hagerstown graduates who provided their perspectives on Washington County’s employment opportunities.

He also met with Emily Kovaleski, talent acquisition manager with First Data, one of the county’s top employers.

Kovaleski expressed her appreciation in working with the Kaplan University-Hagerstown Career Services team. “They are sensitive to our hiring needs and understand what we are looking for in a pool of candidates,” Kovaleski said.


Delaney officially took office Jan. 3 after winning the 2012 November election against Roscoe Bartlett, who had previously held the congressional seat for two decades.

“We were thrilled to host Rep. Delaney,” said W. Christopher Motz, president of Kaplan University’s Maryland locations. “We appreciate the congressman’s attention and effort in learning more about our district and our university.” 

Motz and Delaney were joined by Don Graham, chief executive officer and chairman of The Washington Post Co.

Delaney’s district office in Hagerstown is at 6 W. Washington St., Suite 210.
