Alumnus Justin Drawbaugh, an information technology specialist for the Defense Logistics Agency Information Operations in New Cumberland, Pa., is the winner of the Department of Defense Outstanding Employee with a Disability Award for 2013.
Drawbaugh completed an associate degree in Applied Computer Technology in 2001, and a bachelor's degree in Information Technology from RIT's B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences in 2003. He joined DLA after he graduated and currently designs, develops and tests numerous system changes for the JAVA Automated Mainfest System. He also was recently designated as the local site coordinator for Section 508 compliance, and is responsible for reviewing application web pages for accessibility deficiencies and recommending corrective action with other team members.
Outside of his routine duties, Drawbaugh serves as a recruiter representing DLA at the annual NTID Job Fair, and mentors deaf and hard-of-hearing students in the Dallastown, Pa., area.
"RIT prepared me not necessarily only because of the lectures, papers and tests, but also because of the real-life classroom experiences, valuable internships and interpresonal interaction and communication with my professors and peers," says Drawbaugh.
