In January 2022, I took a big commitment - to literally be by you and your institution's side to advance the messaging and value proposition of CTE in YOUR community. And all of this, FAST. I couldn't stand by and wait for the cavalry to save our institutions, miss another year, or postpone another fall. Putting things into action is much more complicated than discussing them. So, all the heavy lifting that needed to happen required full commitment from my side. And so, I went ALL in. I founded Catapult and launched the first "CTE Recruitment & Marketing" professional development program, which is still running. The response we received from the very beginning of the master class added fuel to an already intense fire. It turned thoughts into ideas, ideas into solutions, solutions into action. Tangible action.
