Hello! My name is Carter Croft, I am 21 years old and from Overland Park, KS. I played baseball for about 14 years beginning when I was 4. I enjoy music, playing guitar, and spending time with my two Boston Terriers. I have always been interested in technology, specifically computers which led me to go to college pursuing Software Development, but I took a big hit to my motivation when the pandemic hit and classes shifted on online learning.

Hi there! My name is Halle Roach, I grew up in a small town called Bowling Green, MO. which is about an hour and 45 minutes out from the STL Centriq location! Throughout my years of school, I was continually active in FFA and went to State competitions. Graduating high school, I found myself working at horse barns cleaning stalls and shortly after working at a warehouse where I decide I wanted to have an actual career.

Transitioning from Warfighter to Cyber Warrior
I retired after serving 20 years on active duty as a Chief Hospital Corpsman and spent 5 years as a commercial electrician. I have found my new purpose that has always been in the back of my mind. With the condition of the world today, I saw a window of opportunity to finally chase my passion. Within a few short months, I will complete my training and be looking for employment opportunities within the cyber world.
