Tri Star is excited to share that its newest program, I.T. Cybersecurity, will now offer students the opportunity to earn free college credit through Rhodes State College and its College Credit Plus program. During a brief press conference in Tri Star’s cybersecurity classroom on Friday, January 29th, a formal announcement was made by Dr. Cynthia Spiers, the president of Rhodes and Tri Star’s director Tim Buschur. Both administrators spoke about the agreement and what it offers: a great opportunity for students to save time and money on their college education while still in high school. Now Cybersecurity students taking the course can earn college credit free of charge if they successfully complete the program. The cost of the class, textbooks and any fees that come with them is paid for by the school. The I.T. Cybersecurity program is currently being taught by Mike Eilerman, a former Rhodes College instructor.
