Like many high school kids, Ivan Marchany '16 was very much into video games. But little did he realize that his boyhood hobby would turn into a career path in cyber-security. Because of a learning difference, Ivan's college search led him from his home in Puerto Rico to the Curry College PAL program, where he has thrived academically as an IT major, turning his once-perceived weaknesses into strengths.
Shawn Edge '08 was always that neighborhood kid who got called over to a friend's house to set up a VCR or troubleshoot on the computer. By the time he started his college search a dozen years later, he knew he wanted to major in information technology and gain hands-on practical experience, and the Curry College program seemed like a perfect fit.
Congratulations to members of the Curry applied technology faculty for their on-going professional accomplishments!
