America's high-tech sector has been a key driver of economic growth in recent years - and this will likely continue. STEM fields - those in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics - are critical for the U.S. to remain competitive globally. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which refers to STEM careers as "tomorrow's jobs," employment in STEM occupations is projected to grow by 10.5% between 2020 and 2030, compared to 7.5% growth in non-STEM jobs.
Workers in high-tech industries also tend to be better compensated than those working in other sectors. The typical worker in a STEM occupation earned $95,420 in 2021, more than double the median wage of $40,120 in non-STEM jobs.
While demand for STEM workers is growing nationwide, high-tech jobs tend to be concentrated in some major cities. In the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell metro area, located in Georgia, jobs in high-tech industries account for 11.6% of overall employment compared to 9.5% of all employment nationwide. The most concentrated high-tech occupation in the metro area, relative to the U.S. as a whole, is management of companies and enterprises.
Jobs in STEM fields are generally well-paying, and those in the Atlanta area are no exception. The average annual pay among occupations in STEM fields in the area stands at $123,035, about 1.9 times higher than the average pay across all occupations in the metro area.
All data used in this story is from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages. Metro areas were ranked based on employment in industries defined as "high-tech" by the BLS as a percentage of total employment. The BLS defines high-tech industries as those with a concentration of STEM occupations at least 2.5 times greater than their average concentration nationwide in goods-producing and service-providing industries.

Spanish-Latin restaurant Casa Robles (“Oak House”), backed by Ryan and Dan Pernice, the brothers behind Table and Main, Osteria Mattone, and Coalition Food and Beverage, is now open in downtown Roswell.
Taking over the former Whiskey Project space on Oak Street, Casa Robles is currently open for dinner only, with weekend brunch expected to begin in the coming weeks.
After serving as the executive sous chef for Osteria Mattone for a decade, El Salvador native Laura Orellana now leads the kitchen at Casa Robles.

The menu for Casa Robles features a mix of traditional Spanish tapas and dishes from El Salvador and Mexico, including pupusas, cochinita pibil tacos, tamales stuffed with Salvadorean chicken and chickpeas, and mariscada (a spicy seafood stew.) Dessert includes flan, churros, and tarta de Santiago (Spanish almond cake).
Like the food, the wine menu at Casa Robles leans heavily toward producers from Spain, Portugal, and South America, with cocktails featuring rum, tequila, mezcal, and pisco.

ROSWELL, Ga. — The City of Roswell has hired a new full-time economic development director.
City Councilman Peter Vanstrom announced at the May 23 City Council meeting that Darryl Connelly is set to start June 6.
Connelly, a previous Roswell resident, is returning after serving more than 12 years as senior vice president of asset management for the New York City Economic Development Corporation, according to LinkedIn.
“We’re all very excited to have him join us,” Vanstrom said. “… He’s looking forward to coming back and being involved in the city. He understands the dynamics of the city, he understands that the residents come first, and he appreciates all the history and all the culture and all the beauty that is in this city.”
Vanstrom said that during the interview process, what impressed him the most about Connelly was his commitment to project completion and his excitement for a good challenge.
“Sometimes there seems to be a lag from point A to point Z to getting complete in the development of projects that we have going, and he will be tasked with that immediately and make sure that we move things along in this town as we keep building and growing our commercial district,” Vanstrom said.
Connelly also has a strong history of working on redevelopment, a talent Vanstrom said the City of Roswell needs to focus on more.
“We don’t have a lot of new areas,” Vanstrom said. “We’re looking at areas that we need to redevelop, and [Connelly’s] going to be very, very helpful.”
Also, at the May 23 meeting, the City Council approved the first reading of a proposed $172.8 million fiscal year 2023 budget, which includes $277,500 in funding for the economic development organization Roswell Inc, headed by Steve Stroud.
The allocation is an increase of $57,500 from what was presented at the May 9 City Council meeting. However, Mayor Kurt Wilson said it reflects the funding Roswell Inc asked for the previous year to sustain its efforts.
During public comment, longtime resident Janet Russell asked the City Council why it was continuing to fund Roswell Inc if the city is hiring a director for Economic Development.
Vanstrom said he expects Connelly and Roswell Inc to have “an amazing relationship.”
“We knew when we took office that the challenge – and the mayor has been working very, very hard on this – is how do we attract the bigger business, the corporates, the ITs that help,” Vanstrom said. “Those are the things that I’m looking forward to working with the economic development director on that goes a little outside of perhaps what Roswell Inc, with their limited team, has been able to accomplish.”
Wilson said that as a supporter of Roswell Inc, he is willing to take the “absolute burden of responsibility, blame and criticism” for the organization.
“I have seen a very positive movement from the leadership of Roswell Inc in the first five months of this mayor and City Council,” Wilson said. “I’ve seen some real activity that I’m very optimistic about, and as a consequence, we did not increase their budget. We just made their budget the same as last year.”
Lastly, at the May 23 meeting, the City Council approved a resolution to activate a new Roswell Development Authority and dissolve all prior development authorities, not including the existing Downtown Development Authority.
The resolution states the members’ terms on prior development authorities have expired and that they have not taken any action in several years. Vanstrom said the new Roswell Development Authority will work in conjunction with the Downtown Development Authority, which oversees the central business district, to facilitate trade, commerce, industry and employment opportunities in the city.
“Simply put, the new Roswell Development Authority is a huge and long overdue economic engine for the City of Roswell,” Vanstrom said. “Our main focus initially will be East Roswell and the Highway 9 corridor. We’re looking forward to getting going.”

Roswell High School held its annual commencement ceremony in the Ameris Bank Amphitheatre in Alpharetta on Wednesday, May 25 at 2:30 p.m.
Principal Dr. Robert Shaw addressed the graduates and attendees, before conferring 486 diplomas to members of the class of 2022. This is his fifth and final year as principal at Roswell High School.
"As I reflected on what advice I could share with you, I realized that I have been trying to give you the best advice I could over the last four years," said Shaw. "Every morning on the announcements I asked you to be kind, take care of each other and make good decisions. Those statements are still the best way I know for people to succeed."
Student speakers included Valedictorian Riley Davis and Salutatorian Seth Kinoshita.
Davis shared some advice to her fellow graduates in her address.
"I wish to leave you all with one of the biggest lessons I have learned at Roswell," she said. "It is to not let others define you. Don't let anyone tell you that can't pursue your dreams. You can make a positive difference in every person's life that you interact with. Nobody can tell you who you can and cannot be; only you can decide that."
In his speech, Kinoshita also had some words of advice for his classmates.
"Through your voice, your service and your kindness, you all have made the decisions along the way to leave your mark on everyone you touched," he said. "You are the only who decides to speak now. You are the only one who decides to fill in the blank space. You are the only one who decides how to write your own folklore. But most importantly, you are the only who decides to be fearless."
Graduates of Roswell High School's class of 2022 were awarded nearly $23 million in scholarships and will attend such schools as the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Georgia State University, Duke University, Vanderbilt University, George Washington University and New York University, among many others.
Other graduates will move straight into the workforce, utilizing the skills they have developed in high school. One member of the graduating class, Robert Ferris, was selected to attend the United States Military Academy, where he will play golf. Five members of the class have chosen to enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces: Myers L. Heidt and Jair Rodriguez, United States Army National Guard; Daniel Ruiz-Romero and Isabella Gusmao de Castro Kleipaul, United States Marine Corps; and Amin Izquierdo, United States Air Force.
"Despite the challenges that we have overcome, it has been a fantastic year and I will always remember the Class of 2022," said Shaw. "God Bless you as you begin the next phase of your life."
Some graduates returned to the Roswell High School campus after the commencement ceremony to take part in a more recent tradition: gathering in the Ray Manus Stadium for photos, continuing the celebration with faculty, staff, family and friends.

Forty area high school students experienced a week of learning valuable skills at the GenCyber Warrior Academy (GCWA) from June 5-11 at the University of North Georgia's (UNG) Dahlonega Campus. Six UNG faculty and staff served as instructors.
The National Security Agency (NSA) provided UNG grants totaling $265,000 to support GCWA and a weeklong academy later this summer that will help middle and high school educators learn how to teach cybersecurity. With the grant funding, students were able to attend GCWA for free.
"It's been exciting working with our sixth GenCyber high school camp, and we're grateful to the NSA for supporting this camp each summer since 2016," Dr. Bryson Payne, UNG professor of computer science and coordinator of student cyber programs, said.
This year's program includes more than 30 hours of residential, on-site instruction at the Dahlonega Campus and 16-20 hours of pre-camp and post-camp virtual cyber enrichment activities. In October, the students will attend the Hacker Halted 2022 conference in Atlanta.
It's been exciting working with our sixth GenCyber high school camp, and we're grateful to the NSA for supporting this camp each summer since 2016.
Payne said the camp expanded this year to include ethical hacking, forensics, and reverse engineering, "three of the hottest cyber skillsets in both industry and government."
"In ethical hacking, students learned how attackers trick users and steal information, as well as how to block those attacks," he said. "In forensics, they learned how to investigate cyberattacks. And in reverse engineering, they learned how to take apart ransomware and recover files without paying the ransom."
Students received hands-on labs using the Certified Ethical Hacker iLabs curriculum. The standards-based content reinforced the six GenCyber cybersecurity concepts: confidentiality, integrity, availability, thinking like an adversary, defense in depth, and keeping it simple.
"It is that time of year where computer science and information systems faculty get together to inspire highly talented next-generation cyber warriors," Dr. Tamirat Abegaz, UNG associate professor of computer science and information systems, said. "We use this opportunity to share feedback on peer teaching performance."
The mix of hands-on and interactive learning opportunities appealed to Ja'ise Green, a rising senior at Kennesaw Mountain High School.
"I originally thought that the camp was going to be set up in lecture halls and be a rather formal setting where we learn everything in the front half before entering the more camp-style setup later in the week," Green said.
Joshua Acklen, a rising senior from Innovation Academy Home School, has family members who work in cybersecurity. The Roswell, Georgia, student found the experience "enriching" and enjoyed being able to see what family members deal with on a daily basis.
"The pre-camp activities helped us expedite learning the more technical side of cybersecurity," Acklen said.
Elizabeth Iaryguine, a Kennesaw Mountain High School rising senior, enjoyed getting a taste of college life by interacting with professors.
"The academy has definitely changed my perspective on cybersecurity," she said. "I didn't know how broad the field is and how a variety of skillsets and interests can be applied to it. Overall, I'm really glad I went."
