Jack Wachter '24 Honored by Baltimore Business Journal

Jack Wachter '24 has been recognized by the Baltimore Business Journal as a recipient of the 2022 "INNO Under 25" Award, which recognizes five young entrepreneurs and forward-thinking tech workers. He is the youngest of the honorees and only teenager. This honor comes after he completed a summer internship with T. Rowe Price Group, Inc. As a member of the Loyola Cyber Science student leadership team, Jack has been at the forefront of the club's recent growth. The internship program is a result of a unique partnership between Loyola and T. Rowe that provides one spot for a high school student each year.

The internship included reporting to the company's Owings Mills offices four days per week and working remotely on Fridays. One of the individuals he worked with regularly is Jeff Six '96, Senior Director of Architecture Security at T. Rowe Price. In the article from the BBJ, Six shares that Jack's interests and talents are a unique combination. "The fact that he was interested in both [finance and cybersecurity] makes him a unicorn," said Six. "We recognize Loyola is a very good source of talent." Six also noted that the company has adjusted its recruiting practices as it recognizes that top talent may not come from the traditional four-year college funnel.

In addition to his passion for Cyber Science, Jack is a two-time All-MIAA Track & Field selection, most recently earning an MIAA championship title in May 2022. He has also devoted his energy to two projects on the side, which include a program that incorporates an algorithm to analyze and compare stocks and another that serves as an automated bot to provide an edge in the popular footwear resale market.
