Fore Cyber Progress will partner with the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville, the University of Alabama-Huntsville, Alabama A&M University, Huntsville and Madison City Schools, Madison County Schools and corporate partners in the DoD/Government Contracting space.
It’s clear that the city of Huntsville and it’s business leaders have made a significant investmentin the future of cyber. However, as we all know, Huntsville can’t be a leader in cyber intelligence, technology and defense without the buy-in of the next generation of leaders. It’s one of the major reasons the Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering is so important to Huntsville and why other local initiatives like Cyber Huntsville have made strong connections with both Huntsville and Madison city school systems. It’s our belief that we can leverage the power of professional sports to help play a role in this city and region wide initiative while also creating adiverse entertainment option for companies to connect value with.
In 2022, the HomeTown Lenders Championship raised $10,000 for a scholarship fund for students interested in acyber related major at the University of Alabama-Huntsville and Alabama A&M University. We hope to seethis number continue to grow over the years with Huntsville corporate support. Our 2021 UAH recipient, Sydney Bacon, is a graduate of James Clemens, who’s now majoring in cybersecurity engineering and minoring in both computer sciences and math. Her aim is to potentially pursue a career white hat hacking.
