“The LPN Launch program is unique because it gives opportunities that many other colleges and organizations do not offer. It has been life changing for me.”

Kerreca Myhand , Licensed Practical Nursing Student

“I wanted to be an example for my son. I wanted him to know that it doesn’t matter how long it takes you to finish attaining your degree. It only took me two years to get my associate’s and three certifications in the IT field thanks to Drake State!”

Tirek Nettles, Computer Information Systems Alumnus

“I enjoy seeing the next generations coming up and working hard at a trade that I cherish. I try to make the time they have here with us at Drake as real-world as possible.”
