Success Stories

Brian Gallagher

As a NOVA student, Brian Gallagher pursued a Career Studies Certificate in Cyber Security and was able to use his education to begin his new career path toward Cyber Security. He was fortunate to receive the National Science Foundation's Scholarship-for-Service Cybercorps and continue his academic pursuit of a master's in Cybersecurity at Marymount University. Currently, Gallagher is an IT Specialist for the NSF. If it wasn't for the opportunities presented to him at NOVA, he would not have been able to fully realize his potential academically and professionally.
