The ACES Program and Christian Johnson, ACES student and Student Board President, were featured in an article published April 2, 2014 in The Diamondback, the University’s newspaper. The article depicts Christian’s involvement in the ACES program, the development of his interest in computer science and cybersecurity, and highlights his involvement as a member of the Task Force investigating the University of Maryland data breach of February 18, 2014.

ACES Director Dr. Michel Cukier is quoted relating Christian’s accomplishments to those of all the ACES students: “Christian represents many of the students [in the program],” Cukier said. “They have the classwork, but they take advantage of what ACES has to offer. They know it’s just as much about experiential learning.”
