His HSCC team finished as high as 7th place in the three national HSCC championships in which he participated. The legacy of his HSCC performance with the LA chapter wasn’t in the final placement … but rather in the foundation formed on local level. The chapter has grown its youth education program since the turn of the century to the point that upwards of 50 students are being trained each year. Jerich went on to graduate from ITT Technical Institute. He is currently working as a cyber-security program manager for Lockheed Martin.
