Zacary Sparks

GPA: 3.8

Class Rank: 7

Hey there, my name is Zacary Sparks. I am 19 years old and I am currently enrolled at Four County Career Center in the Computer Networking and Cybersecurity program. I am planning on heading out to Bowling Green State University after I obtain my Career Passport and Graduation certificate from FCCC and my home school, Edon Northwest. My major is going to be Computer Science. With this degree, my bachelor’s in 2025, I am going to work in the IT field for a few years and hopefully find a couple job opportunities then. My end goal with my degree is to find myself in a Systems Administration job, managing devices on networks for companies and maintaining them. This would kind of make me the head of many of the IT associates within the company excluding a couple who may administrate servers or have higher powers.

Moving on to my personal life, I have been deeply engrained in technology since I was a kid and it has always been apart of my life. I play a lot of video games and I love to meet new people! My interest in games is a very big part of my life and the culture of videogames defines a lot of who I am as a person and has also helped me open myself to new people. Meeting these people gives me a lot of confidence and has helped me overcome anxiety when it comes to presentation and speaking in front of crowds.

Thank you for checking out my page and, if you have any questions about my career or personal life, feel free to use my number or email included in the page to contact me!

Spanish Club

From 2017-2019, I was a member of my local Spanish Club. This club was directly tied with the academic classes we took and included events such as hosting tournaments, baking cultural food or simply going somewhere and keeping it tied to Spanish. This was integral to my Spanish education, which I now have 3 years of learning under my belt and am almost an Intermediate Spanish speaker.
