"The Ron Howell Foundation's Mentoring program has truly been a blessing to me. I'm thankful to have met my mentor, Mr. Sipe. He is always available when I have any IT questions and need career advice. Mr. Sipe has a lot of wisdom and is intentional about checking in with me to see how my studying is going for my certification exams as well as encouraging me when my IT journey doesn't seem so clear. With the encouragement and advice from my mentor, I have landed my first entry level position in Information Technology and I look forward to seeing where this takes me."

"I received my degree in Information Systems in June of 2019 and it was one of the happiest days of my life. That was until I started my job search. Every place wanted experience or a certification of some kind, and just getting your foot in the door was kind of impossible. I felt hopeless.. that was when I found the Ron Howell Foundation. During my mentorship, I was able to get training and experience that was not possible in my classroom setting.

Since, I have also realized a full role in IT is not for me, but I do love the knowledge and information I have learned through my experience. If not given the opportunity, I would have never focused on what I wanted to do in my life and seen the options I have. I just want to say thank you to everyone involved in the process!"
