Press release from Red Bank Regional High School

The recent hackings of American government and corporate institutions have rocked our nation and emphasized how important a superior cyber security industry is to the defense of the United States.  Finding talented individuals to fill the future roles of our Cyber Patriot warriors is the reason the Air Force Association’s CyberPatriot Competitions were developed.

For the past eight years, Red Bank Regional High School has offered a superior program in Cyber Security for its students in the award-winning Academy of Information Technology (AOIT). In fact, in the first year the Cyberpatriot contest opened to public high schools, RBR took first place in the nation.

RBR exhibited this same strong performance in the CyberPatriot State Round that took place on January 14. That day six RBR teams worked from the school media center to compete virtually, determined to take the title for New Jersey. They ended the six-hour competition by sweeping the First, Second and Third place NJ State finishes.

At its February board meeting, the Red Bank Regional (RBR) Board of Education honored its highest achieving academic stars with their very own Varsity Letter. The tradition began many years ago when the school district sought to encourage and honor academic excellence the same way it honors its top athletic achievements, with a varsity letter. In order to earn an Academic Varsity Letter, students must maintain a straight A in every marking period of the preceding year (September of 2014 through June of 2015 in this case).

According to Red Bank Regional High School Guidance Director Dawn Kaszuba,The overall GPA average for this group was 98.04. They are not content to get the 90, but rather strive to achieve their very best…in many ways.
