In case some of my readers do not know, I am a College of the Ozarks alumnus and I currently work for HealthMEDX. I graduated from the C of O Computer Sciences Program in 2001. Over the past year, I’ve had some great opportunities to assist C of O students and faculty. I was able judge senior projects in May. In July, HealthMEDX invited C of O faculty to share in its success with MO Governor Jay Nixon and HMX C of O alumni in the form of an incentives announcement. In October, I was able to guest lecture on n-Tier application development and I recently had the opportunity to speak at the ACM Meet & Greet. I wanted this post to serve as a big thanks to HealthMEDX for the chance to help assist the C of O Computer Sciences Program. I’d also like to thank C of O students and faculty for the invitations to do so. I truly hope that my experiences and knowledge help the program.
