SPRINGVILLE — Tyler Fornes, a 2010 Springville-Griffith Institute graduate, was recognized at an awards ceremony at the Rochester Institute of Technology as Outstanding Undergraduate Scholar in the B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Science. This group of students has completed a minimum of 83 credit hours of study and has established a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.85 out of 4.0, for all work completed at the university, as of the previous spring term. In addition, selection of students was based on other factors complementing academic achievement, such as creative work, service on student committees, civic activities, employment and independent research.
While at RIT, Fornes has worked as a research assistant for a project focusing on vehicular ad-hoc networks, Saia Communications and EarthLink. He is a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success and will be graduating in May with a Bachelor of Science in network and systems administration. He will be working towards his masters degree in computing security at RIT, in the fall.
