Epic!!

"Tia Hopkins is the VP of Global Solutions Architecture at eSentire. She holds two master’s degrees in security, a bachelor’s in information technology, and several industry certifications such as CISSP.

She was recognized by SC Media as a 2019 Reboot Leadership Award recipient in the Outstanding Educator category, as well as The Software Report’s Top 25 Women Leaders in Cybersecurity and Cyber Defense Magazine’s Top 100 #WomenInCybersecurity; both in 2020. Tia is also an adjunct professor of Cybersecurity at Yeshiva University and is pursuing her PhD in organizational leadership.

'The top 3 challenges that stand out in my mind are lack of diversity, lack of representation, and lack of guidance regarding what it takes to have a successful career in cybersecurity; or where to even start.

On the note of diversity, we have to get better. It’s not enough to simply recruit from a diverse pool of professionals that already exist.

We must also diversify the approach to driving interest in cybersecurity as a real career option. Whether based on age, gender, ethnicity, neurodiversity, disability, etc. we must do more to encourage people to pursue a career in this field."

Be advised.

Attention Caddo families, all district schools and sites will be closed Monday Feb. 22. We will shift to virtual instruction on Tuesday for the remainder of the week.

Based on current conditions in our city and parish, basic necessities such as running water, meals and heat on most of our campuses have been compromised. Thank you for your understanding as we pivot yet again for an unprecedented event.

Lilia A. Abron is an entrepreneur and chemical engineer. In 1972, she became the first black woman to earn a PhD in chemical engineering.

Abron studied at LeMoyne College where she switched from a biology major to a chemistry major. In 1966, Abron earned a B.S. in chemistry from LeMoyne College, with distinction. Her advisor at LeMoyne suggested that she study engineering. She was offered a full scholarship from Washington University in St. Louis to study sanitary engineering. Dr. Abron was one of only two women in a large class of predominantly white males. She completed her entire degree in just thirteen months, graduating in 1968 with an MS in Environmental Engineering.

She began her PhD in September 1968 at the University of Massachusetts Amherst's Department of Civil Engineering under the supervision of Dr. Rolfe Skrimbee. When he moved to the University of Iowa, she moved with him. However, Dr. Skrimbree left the University of Iowa before Abron finished her research, so she completed her degree in Chemical Engineering in 1972, under the supervision of James O. Osburn. She was the first black woman to be awarded a PhD in chemical engineering, and only the third woman to receive a doctorate in chemical engineering from the University of Iowa.

In 1978, Abron founded and became CEO of PEER Consultants, PC. She was the first black person to start an environmental engineering firm. Abron is a member of Delta Sigma Theta sorority.
