On Thursday, November 3, 2016, 48 students from the three Information Technology Academies, sponsored by Citi, shared a field study to CISCO in Jacksonville.  The three schools included Bartram Trail, Creekside and Ponte Vedra.  CISCO designs, installs and connects much of the infrastructure dealing with networking and cybersecurity of computer systems.  They operate in 120 countries.  They support many education programs through their CISCO Academy curriculum.  They offer internships and competition opportunities to students involved with their CISCO Academy Program. They have designed and enhanced many types of phones, video monitors, etc. to maximize group communications.  They had six employees from different backgrounds describe their jobs and the paths they took to reach their current positions.

The students felt the presentation was very informative and inspiring!  Thank you to John Roberts at CISCO for planning this opportunity.
