Joseph attends Villa Madonna Academy in Villa Hills, KY, and plans to study Computer Science with an emphasis on cybersecurity in the Fall of 2023. He is 1 of 20 local high school students selected to participate in the NaviGo Scholars program. This internship program allows students to engage in hands-on activities, professional networking, and soft-skills training. This experience encouraged me to complete my Network Security Expert (NSE) Level 1-3 certification through the Fortinet Training Institute. This organization provides professional certification and training in the growing field of cybersecurity. Joseph completed introductory coding courses in Python through Datacamp, an interactive learning vendor used by 80% of Fortune 1000 companies for technical upskilling development.
Technology is everywhere, from behind the scenes with coding and software programming, or easily demonstrated through AI and robotics. The NSHSS Innovation in Technology Scholarship wishes to honor our students devoted to tech to tell us all about their passions for the field.
