Franklin HS, Class of 2004

I remember my 1st reaction to hearing about IGNITE while at Franklin High School… EXCITMENT! Ms. Cathi was so warming and accommodating, she made sure that we felt welcomed and that we were involved in everything. This was one of my 1st opportunities to see life out side of my community and be exposed to women working in technology that I wasn’t aware of, I learned that day that women could do anything men could do and that they were doing it. That was inspiring to me, the empowerment stuck with me and I gained knowledge and life long relationships along the way. I feel privileged to be apart of such a great group and look forward to seeing its progression.”
