Angie Houtz was born in Charles County, MD in 1974. She spent her entire life in Southern Maryland and graduated as the salutatorian from McDonough High School in Waldorf, MD. Angie attended UMBC on a full scholarship and graduated with a degree in english in 1996. Angie began working for the Office of Naval Intelligence in Suitland, MD as an intern and then eventually graduated to a full-time job as a navy analyst. She was evenutally placed at the Pentagon. Angie was killed instantly in a conference room in the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.
I met Angie during orientation for college in 1992. She was my room-mate for all four years of college and forever my best friend. We shared many special times. The month before she died we had actually gone to Jamaica together to celebrate my father's 50th birthday. We had debated whether to make the trip because it was very expensive and my husband had just been laid off from his job. I will forever be grateful that I made the trip because the memories I have of those few weeks helped keep me sane in the months following her death.
(The picture below shows my housewarming in July 2001 where she showed up wearing the same thing I had on even though we had not planned it)
To honor her memory we (my husband and I, her sisters, and 2 other friends from college) started the Angie M. Houtz Memorial Scholarship Fund. Angie had dedicated her life to serving other people, so it was decided that the scholarship would honor college students who also value community service.
All students attending a Maryland public tertiary institution with a minimum 3.0 GPA and a dedication to community service are eligible.
The fund is supported by three main sources:
1. Tax deductible donations which can be made on the website www.angiefundgolf.com or by mail to:
Angie Houtz Memorial Fund, 1450 Mercantile Lane, Suite 207C Largo MD 20774
2. Family Fun Day Fundraiser
Held on the weekend before the memorial day weekend
Charles County Fairgrounds
3. Angie Houtz Memorial Golf Tournament
Held every Fall
Prince George's County, MD
