As many others have done, he attended Excelsior while working and graduated in 2012 with a bachelor's degree in professional studies with an emphasis on management of technology. A U.S. Navy veteran, Ron retired from a military career of 24 years as a senior chief in the submarine force, during which time he was awarded multiple personal medals and awards for technical prowess, resourcefulness, and superior leadership.
