Madison High school in North East ISD debuted its first Cyber Patriot team. The JROTC Cyber Patriots took home the Rising Star Award at their first Mayor’s Cyber Cup competition. The Cyber Texas Foundation and the Armed Forces Electronics Communications Alamo Chapter awarded the team with a $6,000 prize to help set up a foundation for future teams.
One member of Madison’s Rookie team recently graduated and has earned certification in cybersecurity. Students across the district are getting solid cybersecurity education and experience through Cyber Patriot teams and cybersecurity programs, and many will have the opportunity to embark on an exciting college or career pathway in cyber defense.
