Every year, the ExxonMobil Engineering Scholarship program awards outstanding Hispanic high school seniors who plan to pursue a degree in engineering at U.S. post-secondary institutions. Recently, we had the opportunity to connect with Ensign Lucian Rombado, United States Navy, a 2015 ExxonMobil Engineering Scholarship recipient who received his commission from the U.S. Naval Academy in May 2019. He is currently qualifying as a cryptologic warfare officer at Navy Information Operations Command, Georgia.
Lucian successfully received his Bachelor of Science in Cyber Operations and pursued a variety of cultural and academic opportunities while studying. He studied abroad in Shanghai, China and gained work experience at the National Security Agency and the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab. LNESC and ExxonMobil are proud to have provided Lucian with the support that he needed to pursue diverse experiences that equipped him with a real-world understanding of cybersecurity issues and led him to his current role.
“The LNESC team’s generosity allowed me to achieve my long time goal of graduating from the Naval Academy, and I am incredibly thankful for their continued support for young men and women as they pursue their academic and career goals.”
