Scholarships lead to new heights

ICC Engineering student Ryan Noe has been interested in Aerospace Engineering for almost as long as he can remember. A scholarship through the ICC Educational foundation has put Ryan on his way!

“Coming from an agricultural family…4-H was an important part of my childhood. It was during 4-H, when I became involved in model rocketry, that I realized just how fascinating the aerospace field is.”

In high school, Ryan continued to grow his passion for aerospace and engineering by participating in FIRST Robotics Competitions. When it was time to choose a career path, Ryan had no trouble deciding what to do.

“People say to pursue a career in something which interests you, and I can think of nothing that catches my attention more than aerospace technologies.”

At ICC, Ryan is following his interest and pursuing his Associates in Engineering Science. He plans to transfer to the University of Illinois to study Aerospace Engineering.

As an ICC student, Ryan has continued to be involved with his high school FIRST Robotics Team as a student mentor, and also volunteers as an Emergency Medical Technician and Firefighter for the Spring Bay Fire Department. He is happy to be able to stay at home for two more years so he can be involved in his community and his family’s farm.

Ryan credits ICC with helping him to advance both his educational and personal objectives.

“ICC has helped me reach my potential by not losing me in the numbers. With classes of 30 or less…the professors focus more on individual understanding…I’m a firm believer that ICC has helped me advance my education goals while giving me room to expand my community service as well.”
