Edmond and Theresa Duchesne Celebrate Their 50th Wedding Anniversary
Edmond A. and Theresa
submitted by Shana Roystan On Sunday, October 3, Mrs. Colavito’s Health Occupation Students of America classes met at Derryfield Park in Manchester bright and early for the Juvenile Diabetes walk. The 23 walkers represented Alvirne High School and they raised about $800 for the cause. The three-mile walk was a great success for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and also a great success in bringing together the Alvirne HOSA group.
Local High School Fields Team for National Cyber Competition
submitted by Air Force Association CyberPatriot Five students from Alvirne High School will be competing online in coming weeks in the nation’s largest youth cyber security competition for a chance to win college scholarship money and a free trip to Washington, DC. CyberPatriot, presented by Northrop Grumman, is the one-of-a- kind national cyber security competition produced by the Air Force Association (AFA), a non-profit organization headquartered near Washington, DC. This unique competition will help students learn firsthand about the cyber security field and introduce many to the idea of cyber security as a profession. Led by Coach Kevin Grady, the Alvirne High School team, comprised
of Air Force JROTC members, will virtually compete against hundreds of teams around the nation. CyberPatriot now has more than 500 teams registered and continues to attract high-school educators across the country. Other schools still have time to field teams, with the registration’s October 8 deadline looming.
“Because of our unique online competition format, hundreds of teams can compete at one time,” said Bernie Skoch, CyberPatriot Commissioner. “To join, a high school teacher signs up and signs on five bright students for a fun, hands-on learning opportunity.
It’s a great
chance to learn and have a great time.” Teams of five, with an approved coach (usually a teacher), learn to defend a computer network from real-life computer threat scenarios. In the fall, hundreds of teams square off online using special software and programs provided by CyberPatriot to competitively solve vulnerabilities in their network. The top teams then compete again in a series of online rounds to determine finalists for an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, DC, and the Championship Round at the Gaylord National Convention Center in April 2011. Any high school can field a team for the Open Division, while
JROTC units from any service or Civil Air Patrol are also eligible to field a team for the all-service Commander-in-Chief’s Division. The educational experience and materials are identical for students in either division. Coaches can learn more about CyberPatriot and sign up at http:// www.afa.org/CyberPatriot
