BCHS Trojan Academy — A CEO of a multi-billion dollar programming company named Interapt spoke with students earlier this month at BCHS Trojan Academy. Ankur Gopal discussed his career in programming, his experience of starting a company, and how he is focusing on the youth in Kentucky. Several students filled the TA Media Lab from BCHS, BCMS, and Allen County High School.
Gopal believes that rural areas have great potential for programmers, and he wanted to give the impression that a student does not have to leave Kentucky to have a job in programming or any other related field. The students at Barren County were left inspired and fascinated by Gopal’s visit.
