Yessenia and Faith both hail from Suffolk Public Schools located in Suffolk, Virginia, Lakeland High School and King’s Fork High School, respectively. Both students were enrolled in the Cybersecurity Operations program at The College and Career Academy at Pruden (CCAP). They excelled academically at their base schools, in addition to demonstrating exemplary performance in their Cadet and Technical Education (CTE) programs at CCAP.
These hard-working cadets, successfully completed two (2) years in their program, in which they were exceedingly committed and dedicated. Thus far, they are upholding the ideals of what it means to be outstanding students. Based on their commitment, dedication, consistency and service to their community, both Yessenia and Faith were selected as this year’s recipients for the HRPWA Scholarship.
Upon graduation, Yessenia plans to attend Christopher Newport University and Faith plans to attend Virginia State University this fall. We wish them well in their future endeavors!
