Alan Paller Memorial Cyber Talent Emergency Fund
Kristina Spalding Scholarship Fund
The WiCyS family has lost a beloved sister. Kristina Spalding, vice president of WiCyS Miami Dade College Student Chapter, has passed away unexpectedly. To honor her spritely ways, warm energy, passion for cybersecurity, and love of Miami Dade College, the Spalding family, in partnership with Splunk, has issued the WiCyS Kristina Spalding Scholarship Fund. This financial aid will go towards WiCyS student scholarships for Miami Dade students and the WiCyS BIPOC fellowship awards.
May the love of the WiCyS community give the Spalding family strength to get through the most heartbreaking and challenging of times. Kristina may be gone from this physical world but her spirit will live within the WiCyS organization. The love of our community will ensure the honor of Kristina’s name is never forgotten.
James summers scholarship fund
In honor of the dedication that James Summers devoted to the inclusion and diversity efforts within the cybersecurity workforce, in partnership with Nike, his family has created the WiCyS James Summers Scholarship Fund. This financial aid will go toward a WiCyS scholarship to help underrepresented students attend the WiCyS conference, March 17-19, 2022.
His legacy will continue and be honored through WiCyS as his scholarship helps pave the path for others to enter the Cybersecurity field. WiCyS expresses its sincere condolences to the Summers family and is deeply touched by this thoughtful contribution in creating the scholarship.
