North Farmington High senior Jacob Marchionda is one of six students across the United States invited to present virtually next month on a K12 Student Panel at the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) K12 Cybersecurity Conference.
Held December 6-7, the conference supports growing the cybersecurity workforce of the future.
In his junior year, Marchionda won a scholarship via the CyberStartAmerica cyber game, and has been an active member as team captain for the CyberPatriot Career & Technical Student Organization (CTSO) for the last two years.
“Jacob has been a stellar student in our Cybersecurity program,” cybersecurity teacher Jason Canfield said. “He has come a long way, and I am sure he will continue on his cyber/IT professional journey through his college years.”
The NICE K12 cybersecurity conference gathers educators and cyber professionals for a summit on the current trends, data points, and key topics for K-12 instruction.
