JVS Grad Pursues College Degree in Computer Networking
January 26, 2015 -- Brian Paradis’ fascination with computers began in childhood.
“I knew early on that technology was going to play a big part in my life,” said Paradis, a computer technician and assistant to Sheffield-Sheffield Lake School District Technology Director Doug Cogdell. “I just wasn’t sure what career path to take.”
But that path became clear after Paradis’ 8th grade class visited the Lorain County JVS for a tour.
“That field trip opened my eyes. I was awestruck,” said Paradis, 19, a 2014 graduate of the JVS Network Communications Technology Program. “I thought it would be just another high school, but it was more like a college campus. I had no idea that they offered technology training. It got me thinking seriously about my education.”
Paradis first worked for Cogdell during his sophomore year at Brookside High School, learning about servers and repairing computer equipment, projectors and SMART boards.
