Defense official to participate in Showcase

— U.S. Sen. Bob Casey said Thursday that he has secured the participation of a high-ranking defense official in the upcoming Showcase for Commerce exposition in Johnstown.

Heidi Shyu, the assistant secretary of defense for acquisitions, technology and logistics, accepted the senator’s invitation to participate.

Casey had written a letter urging her to attend because the event will represent the region’s business community, which has a long history of supporting the defense industry.

“I’m looking forward to this year’s Showcase and am confident that the assistant secretary’s participation will contribute to its success,” Casey said in a news release.

The defense-oriented business exposition will be held May 29-31 at the Pasquerilla Conference Center, Cambria County War Memorial Arena and other local venues. For more information, call the Greater Johnstown/Cam­bria County Chamber of Commerce at 536-5107 or email
