I'm not a school person, I'm not going to lie, I don't like being in a classroom, I can't stand it. IGNITE Pathways has changed everything for me. It's crazy, I love it. I get to work hands on and get core credit for it. It’s a great opportunity for people like me.
- Bernie Nelson, IGNITE Champion
I struggled with school for a long time. I couldn’t stay focused and didn’t enjoy it. I got into IGNITE and I learned what I want to do in the future. I stopped struggling so badly in school and I have a big jump start on my future.
- Clay Kelly, IGNITE Champion
I think the program is great. This allows for high school students the opportunity to apply what they learn in school to a career. It also introduces students to many of the occupations and careers that are possibilities for them. I wish I could have had some of the courses when I was in high school.

I don’t like English, it’s my worst subject. At IGNITE, I can take English, and instead of sitting in a desk, I get to work on a challenge.

As a parent, I don’t know if she has any other classes in the school, because IGNITE is the one she talks about all the time.

What shocked me when we hired these apprentices was the skills they brought with them when they walked in the door.
