Schools with Shared Mission Partner on Cyber Security Education Program
Report from 2018 SAIS Stephen P. Robinson Collaboration Grant Recipient Trinity Presbyterian School, Montgomery, AL

The inspiration for Trinity Presbyterian School to develop a cyber security education program came unexpectedly. A speech given by U.S. Air Force Gen. Steven Kwast to educational leaders in Montgomery’s River Region in 2016, where Trinity’s Head of School Kerry Palmer and Middle School/Upper School Principal Mike Zavada were in attendance, left them profoundly moved. “Kwast made us feel like we were on the front lines of battle here in Montgomery as well as across our borders nationally,” Zavada stated. “We are protecting new borders, the borders of cyberspace. Kwast’s enthusiasm and passion for cyber security were palatable when we listened to him that day.”

In his work  Culturize: Every Student. Every Day. Whatever It Takes , Jimmy Casas contends that school culture is the ultimate responsibility of every adult member of a school community and urges schools to take a wider view of leadership.
