HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Huntsville is already famous in space, but it's about to become more famous for work in cyber space.

Tuesday, Huntsville City Schools and the Army Cyber Command become partners in creating the next generation of a cyber security workforce.

On a video conference, Superintendent Dr. Casey Wardynski and the Army Cyber Commander signed an agreement to help students from middle to high school become educated for high-wage jobs in the field.

Wardynski said the younger generation is already computer savvy; why not turn it into a career?

"The young folks are digital natives. They know all about this, so let's give them some skills that they can put to work to make Huntsville the center for excellence and cyber security. Our firms here and the Arsenal are already engaged in cyber already and they are looking for young workers, and we can help create those young workers," Wardynski said.

This makes Huntsville City Schools a model for the nation as the only district with this kind of education partnership.
