Education office opens in New Hope


The American Higher Education Development Corporation (AHED) held a ribbon cutting for its new corporate headquarters office in New Hope Aug. 3.

Stephen Tave, chief executive officer, a resident of Washington Crossing, searched for an anchor location and found New Hope to meet the needs perfectly.

Tave believes the location is perfect for AHED’s new growth initiative, Chris Wargo, chief operating officer, said.

“We would like to thank the Scannapieco family for creating such an amazing office and presenting their excellent customer service,” Tave said. “We are fortunate that Mayor Larry Keller was in attendance for the ribbon cutting. It meant a lot to the 225 employees who work at AHED that Mayor Keller welcomed them to New Hope.”
