Ross Waycaster
Front End Web Developer

I’m a 25 year old, born and raised in Tupelo, Mississippi. After graduating from Tupelo High School in 2010, I continued on to Mississippi State University. During my freshman year, I pledged Sigma Chi Fraternity and I served as the Technology Chairman all 4 years. During the Spring semester of my sophomore year I studied abroad on a program through the University of Virginia called Semester at Sea where I circumnavigated the globe in 105 days and visited 14 different countries. I graduated college in May of 2014 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Information Systems.
