Ron Murray, NNS' vice president of quality and process excellence, presented the house keys to Shereen Wynder and her daughters, Shakira and Treasure."While this house was built by the hands of shipbuilders, it will be filled with the heart of the Wynder family and the many people who have volunteered their time leading to the construction of this beautiful home," Murray said.
