Alumni Spotlight: Anthony Barron
Anthony joined HSC as a scholar in the Fall of 2008. He earned his undergraduate degree in Geography (Geographic Information Systems) in 2012 from the University of Texas at Austin. With this degree, he hoped to pave his way into the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, which he accomplished later on.
Since graduating, Anthony started his career with L-3 Communications as an Intelligence Collection Manager. This defense contracting role allowed him to travel internationally. After these travels, he returned to his hometown of Round Rock, Texas after 3 years.
Now, Anthony is a vCIO in Round Rock. As a vCIO, he gets the opportunity to work with companies in order to develop complex IT solutions that better meet their business goals. He is also currently pursuing his MBA in Business Administration at the University of Texas at Austin.
When looking back at his time at HSC, Anthony states:
"HSC helped me build my network and find equally ambitious students across multiple schools. I connected with professionals who provided valuable advice on pursuing a career after graduation."
During his scarce free time, Anthony rotates between watching his favorite shows—The Office and the Newsroom—and reading his favorite authors Jordan Peterson and Vince Flynn.
Anthony's biggest advice for success is: "what got you here today is not what is going to get you to the next place."
We look forward to seeing what Anthony continues to accomplish!
