Computer Science Club Awarded in Competition

The CJ Computer Science Club participated in the Cyber Raider competition held at Wright State University on Saturday, November 16. They competed against high school and college students (both under graduate and graduate levels). The club was recognized for their efforts as no student had experience with the LINUX operating system whereas all the other participants had technical knowledge and experience. Their learning curve was very steep yet they persevered and came away with a better understanding of cyber security and LINUX. The competition was partly sponsored by the U.S. Army cyber security and Wright State’s Cyber Security college program. Members of the CJ Computer Science Club earned a military coin for their participation and efforts.

Senior Earns Eagle Scout Rank

Joseph Castellano '20 recently earned his Eagle Scout rank. For his Eagle Scout project, Castellano created a "bug hotel" in the children's garden at Wegerzyn Garden. 

"The bug hotel has many shelves that hold various objects, such as wood logs, sticks, bricks, and clay pots," Castellano said. "I enjoyed creating a feature that would help the environment and be a focal point for children visiting the garden."
