Maritz Hosts Web & Computer Students

The Maritz Corporation recently hosted an Information Technology (IT) Extravaganza for our Web & Computer Programming students. On April 18th, students were treated to a panel discussion, lunch, and tours of IT departments.

Denise Gibbs, a DBA-SQL at Maritz and advisor to our program, put together the visit and speaker panel. Her goal was to help students realize the wide variety of IT professions open to them. Students heard speakers from several departments who shared their backgrounds, described the education required for their position, and answered student questions. Speakers included: Valerie Gemmingen – MITS HR, Michael Gorzel – NOC Operations, Jerry Johnson – Big Data, Mark Renaud – Windows Administration, Joe Epplin – Application Development, Lisa Spahr – Project Management, and Amy Detzel – Security. Gibbs has served on our advisory board for over 30 years and graduated from our former O’Fallon Tech campus. Epplin and Harwell also serve on our board. Students also learned about several tools currently used in quality application development such as Hadoop, Ploymer, Swagger, Angular, AOP, Spring, VM Management, Jump Box, and AWS.

Leah Harwell, an applications developer and 2009 South Tech Web & Computer Programming graduate, also met with students and shared information about her post-secondary education and her Maritz career. Allowing our students to see Tech alumni in their work environments is always an engaging experience for them.

Students toured the Network Operating Center, which runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. During a tour of the server room students learned about the programming and systems analyst positions at Maritz along with other supports. , the server room, the area where programmers and systems analyst reside and other parts of the Maritz Corporation.

Beginning to build the real world skills required for a career in information technology is one of the many benefits of participating in a South Tech program. For more information about Web & Computer Programming or to apply, please visit: http://southtechnical.org/programs/.
