Edward Granlund attends Carroll Community College in Westminster Maryland, where he is pursuing a degree in Cyber Security. Whether he is buried among the wires finding physical defects in PCs or painstakingly troubleshooting data, Mr. Granlund distinguishes himself with his attention to detail and natural problem-solving ability.
A passionate student of the world, Mr. Granlund has always explored a varied range of activities and interests. He is multilingual (Spanish and English, among others) and holds certificates and commendations in such diverse areas as sailing and martial arts. Skier, CrossFit enthusiast, accomplished flutist - his resume seems to make more sense once James Bond aficionado is added to the bottom of the list.
When he is not working hard at school, Mr. Granlund enjoys spending time with family and friends, food, and travel. He has volunteered with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and Trees for Soldiers, a nonprofit dedicated to providing deployed troops with small Christmas trees. The 2018-2019 school year will find him beginning his Capstone project in Cyber Security as he approaches the fulfilment of his degree. Hopefully, he can find some time to relax, as well.
Outside of his academic accomplishments, Edward embraces opportunities for personal and physical growth. To cultivate his body as well as his mind, Edward challenges himself with CrossFit workouts at least three times weekly. When he is not at his local CrossFit box, Edward nurtures a passion for the martial arts, having attained a Black Belt therein. To exercise his right brain, Edward engages in vigorous debates as a member of the college Philosophy Club and, when he can, travels extensively to feed his appreciation for other cultures.
