Congressman Rick Allen Visited the Cyber Academy of Excellence

Another day of “Excellence” for RCSS! Congressman Rick Allen visited the Cyber Academy of Excellence at the Richmond County Technical Career Magnet School today to discuss the cyber program and its potential impact on Augusta, Georgia, and the nation. After a brief presentation by CTAE staff members, Mr. Allen engaged with several Cyber Academy students to learn about the opportunities available to them while they are still in high school. One student shared her story of using her cyber knowledge and skills to be chosen for an internship that has turned into full-time employment with Unisys. Other students shared stories of being dual enrolled at Augusta Technical College and receiving state and national cyber certifications.  Students were also able to showcase their skills through a variety of cyber simulation exercises.

RCSS thanks Congressman Allen for his visit and encouraging words! We are excited to see our cyber students pushing their limits and achieving their goals.
