Alumni Spotlight: Griffin Egner

In this week's Alumni Spotlight, we catch up with alumnus Griffin Egner.

What are you doing now?

I am a Cyber Security Researcher / Project Manager for Idaho National Laboratory.

How did APS prepare you for this role?

My involvement in shop class, band, robotics and the fantastic teachers and small class sizes pushed me out of my comfort zone to challenge myself in new ways I didn’t think was possible.

What is your advice for current Packers?

Get involved in something you like, specialize in that something and leverage your strengths in that field to carve out your own slice of fun!

Who at APS inspired you?
