Dr. Keith Plemmons Published in the CDCA Communicator cdca picture

“Decision makers familiar with the educational processes responsible for producing our nation’s cyber workforce have much to be concerned about. There concerns are well founded.” This is opening statement that Dr. Plemmons (The Citadel School of Engineering) and Ashley Sklavos (Lockheed Martin) used to open their article in the Summer 2012 Charleston Defense Contractors Association (CDCA) publication, the Communicator. Keith and Ashley’s article joined others written by prominent industry leaders from the Charleston community to highlight the education initiative in area. The title “Serious Business – The Education and Training of Tomorrow’s Cyber Workforce” offered a clue as to the contents of the article. A broad spectrum approach was used to chronicle a myriad of STEM activities taking place in the Lowcountry. Of particular interest was The Citadel STEM Center of Excellence and its activities to connect, orient, and amalgamate “islands” of activity and student engagement. Also, the workings and operations of the Lowcountry STEM Collaborative were presented. In keeping with the seriousness of situation, businesses were called upon to make decisions and resolve the need for growing and dynamic cyber workforce. The following questions were offered to the business community:

  • If the problem is an inadequate cyber workforce, then what is the right business decision?
  • Because the challenges our country faces are of a collective nature, why shouldn't the response be of a collective nature?
  • What can the CDCA do?

The article closed with a call to action for supporting STEM activities and for stimulating, cultivating, and challenging the youthful passion for all things digital. What are you doing to support STEM education in our local schools?
