Professional Systems Associates, Inc. (PSA), a local product lifecycle management (PLM) software development company, presented the director of Mosley High School’s IT Academy, Tommy Davis, with a donation of five Microsoft Surface 3 tablets on October 14, 2015 at PSA’s corporate office.
PSA’s donation was in response to the IT Academy’s pledge to participate in the Hour of Code, a global initiative incorporated with Computer Science Education Week held December 7-13, 2015. In addition to the tablet donation, PSA will provide two junior staff programmers to assist the IT Academy students during the Hour of Code event. According to Davis, the IT Academy currently serves 450 students at Mosley High School with a total of 28 students focusing on Cyber Security. The goal of the academy is to prepare students with the technical knowledge and skills needed for further education in cyber security related careers in the Information Technology (IT) field after completing high school.
PSA has been an active part of the IT Academy’s Professional Development Subcommittee for the past two years. Subcommittee member and PSA President, James Moon states, “Our software company is such a success story when it comes to creating high-tech jobs within the local community. Many students think you have to move out of the area to find a high paying job but our company proves that’s not always the case. We have been in Panama City over twenty-seven years and a third of our employees graduated high school in Bay County; some went off to college and returned home. We feel that it is so important to contribute to the next generation and give them what they need to stay here, be successful and make the local workforce strong. And that’s our goal. We want to give people the option to stay here in Bay County and make a great living if they choose.” Moon also challenges other businesses to get involved and contribute, “I would like to challenge other private businesses in the area to reach out to the Mosley IT Academy and see what they need.”
