2017 Valedictorian Cyean Johnson

Class of 2017 graduate Cyean Johnson is making waves at the next level. A Mechanical Engineering major (with a concentration in propulsion) in the Honors College at Alabama A&M University, Cyean was selected to participate in a unique research opportunity this summer at the University of California Irvine. Cyean’s work there was so impressive that he has already earned a full scholarship for grad school! Cyean says he pulled from a quote from Colin Powell, “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.” Says Cyean, “That sums up real graduate research. There will be days when nothing works, and days when everything goes as planned. There are times when you have to go back to the drawing board, and times when you’ve already had the solution. But working hard and not losing sight of the goal leads to success in the end.”
