Pay it Forward: Ambassador Joshua Felton
On October 7, 2016, Newport News Public Schools student and Summer STEAM Ambassador (’14 and ’15) Joshua Felton spoke before approximately 75 attendees, representing industry, academia, and the military at Thomas Nelson Community College’s annual cyber security conference. Ambassador Joshua took a cyber security course at Summer STEAM 2015 on the campus of Radford University. Ambassador Joshua described the course design and applied learning exercises, as well as his takeaways about how to guard his password, be mindful of vulnerable websites, and the importance of cyber security to our national interests. Ambassador Joshua’s remarks were well received. A U.S. Air Force Lieutenant presented him with a pendant to encourage him to continue with his studies, especially in the field of cyber security.
