The Huntsville Championship Fore Cyber Progress program is a direct business product tied to the top-level goal of the Huntsville Championship to make a tangible impact on the North Alabama community within our Community Pillar.
It’s clear that the city of Huntsville and it’s business leaders have made a significant investment in the future of cyber. However, Huntsville can’t be a leader in cyber intelligence, technology and defense without the buy-in of the next generation of leaders. It’s one of the major reasons the Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering is so important to Huntsville and why other local initiatives like Cyber Huntsville have made strong connections with both Huntsville and Madison city school systems. It’s our belief that we can leverage the power of professional sports to help play a role in this city and region wide initiative while also creating a diverse entertainment option for companies to connect value with.
This program will partner with the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville, the University of Alabama-Huntsville, Alabama A&M University, Huntsville and Madison City Schools, Madison County Schools and corporate partners in the DoD/Government contracting space.
