On Friday, September 30, 2016, the Oak Room at the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Regina was once again home to the graduation ceremonies of Ignite’s Cycle 39 graduates!
There were 16 proud graduates and their families in attendance, as well as mentors, investors and investment partners. The MC for the evening was Nick Langshaw (Employer Advisory Council member & mentor), and bringing greetings to the graduates were Robert Haynes (Chair of Ignite Executive Board of Directors) and Mark Simmons (Chair of Ignite Foundation Board of Directors). Michael Schlaug (Plant Manager, Yara Belle Plaine) spoke on behalf of Ignite Investors.
The guest speaker was Leon Matechuck, who graduated with Cycle 30 in 2010. He shared about his journey before and after Ignite and encouraged the graduates to never give up.
Valedictorian Krystal Cyr spoke about how her life has changed since coming to Ignite and how she now feels confident that she can do anything she sets her mind to!
