High Tech High: New Opportunities For NE Ohio Students

Written by

Today, a special bonus edition of "This Week in Tech with Jeanne Destro" focused on two new programs in our community aimed at getting high school students excited about, and ready for careers in the tech industry.

First, we'll be talking with the founder and CEO of information security consulting company, TrustedSec, headquartered in Fairlawn, and of the managed security service provider, Binary Defense, which is headquartered in Stow.

As you'll hear from David Kennedy, he's just started a new program aimed at training students at Bedford High School, so that they can immediately start working in the cyber security field directly after graduation, without having to get a college degree.

She has information about a mobile "Hackathon" coming up for Akron Public School Students at North High School, on November 11th.
