Montgomery College’s own Joe Roundy served as a technical mentor and adviser to four student teams from Poolesville High School who participated in the Air Force Association’s CyberPatriot competition program.
More than 3,000 middle school and high school students from around the country were involved in the competition.
One of the Poolesville teams successfully moved through primary rounds and made it to the final competition, where they placed third overall.
Mr. Roundy is the Montgomery College Cybersecurity Program Manager, overseeing the new Cybersecurity lab and responsible for developing partnerships between the College and local industry partners.
He also mentors and coaches students who are involved in Montgomery County Public Schools technology clubs. Volunteers like Mr. Roundy play a special and essential role in these competitions.
Poolesville is one of ten Montgomery County Public Schools that participated in the annual High School Cyber Challenge hosted by Montgomery College in March of 2016.
