Cathi Rodgveller takes great pride in inspiring and teaching the next generation of women.

Inspiring and teaching the next generation of women in the areas of technology evolution is something Cathi Rodgveller takes great pride in. Rodgveller founded a program called Ignite, a program that allows women in science, technology, engineering and math careers (also known as STEM disciplines) to inspire young girls in these areas and consider careers in STEM fields. Through Ignite’s programs, and under Cathi’s leadership, female and non-binary youth in underserved areas are exposed to a wide variety of opportunities for their futures.

Cathi works tirelessly to shine a light on these subject she is passionate about, all with the hope to improve these student’s futures. KIRO Radio and WSECU are proud to honor Cathi Rodgveller as a Hometown Hero and award her with $2,000 for her selfless investments into her community. If you know someone who invests in their hometown, nominate them as a Hometown Hero here.
