ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA — S.C. Cyber has recognized Winthrop University’s Joyce Camp with its inaugural Award for Individual Excellence for her efforts in promoting cybersecurity and computer science education

Camp, director of the Instructional Technology Center in the Richard W. Riley College of Education, will formally accept her award on May 23 in Charleston.

“It was a complete surprise,” Camp said. “They wanted to showcase an individual who is working throughout the state to promote cybersecurity and computer science education. I was nominated by [retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen.] Lee Eisner, who works with S.C. Cyber.”

Camp’s recognized accomplishments include:

*Securing a National Security Agency (NSA) and National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to host GenCyber camps for students and teachers last summer;

*Helping to update and design curriculum for the S.C. Department of Education in cybersecurity and computer forensics;

*Offering professional development on how to teach computer science and cybersecurity skills; and

*Co-chairing the S.C. Cyber Education Committee.

Camp added that she will be presenting at conferences throughout the state and will complete more courses in cybersecurity, programming and networking.
