Student receives scholarship & credentials

Aiden Sheenan with Veronica Dooley at NCCIA 2023 conference

The opportunity for students to attend conferences and events that pertain to their field is invaluable. Recently, Information Technology student Aiden Sheehan had such an opportunity. Aiden is the recipient of the David Harris Memorial Scholarship of $750. Aiden shared that the scholarship “is the only way I am able to attend school.” As a scholarship recipient he was also invited to attend training sessions. Aiden attended a networking session and security session, both offering certifications upon completion from Pearson. These certifications will help him stand out from other candidates as he pursues his career. When Aiden completes his degree at HCC, he will pursue an Associate in Science degree to then transfer to a four-year institution. His hope that one day he will be a professional penetration tester. Whether he will work for an employer or start his own business, Aiden is definitely on the right path toward his career goals and this recognition helps bolster that path.
