Navigators

I teach in an alternative High School setting. For the last 10 years, our program has been called the Warrick Education Center, where we accept students who, for whatever reason (unwed teen mothers, students who provide income to the family, attendance issues, etc). They can come to us and still earn their High School Diploma and graduate with their home schools. Our mascot was the Dark Horses. (hence my icon)
This year, we expanded and built an entirely new Tech Center in the district. There are students learning welding, construction, maintenance, nursing, EMT, physical therapy and more programs being added yearly. Our diploma kids are there now, too. We call ourselves the Warrick Pathways and Career Center, and our mascot is the Navigators (for the Pathways, duh)

We have a 55 gallon sea water fish tank in our office that is the first thing visitors see on entering the building. This will be prominently displayed in the fish tank. If you have a school with a Navigator mascot, feel free to steal away.

What a tremendous opportunity for those students (and all you teachers!). Love that technical skills are being encouraged and not just “college” prep. We see so much these days about technical workers being needed - construction, laborers, etc., because there is such a shortage of them and they are considered, for whatever reason, to be a “lower-class” occupation. They aren’t, of course, as even careers like farming are much needed. It’s great that your school is expanding its course offerings. And the logo looks fantastic!

One of the few good things Indiana has done for education recently. The state actually offers a technical pathway, separate from standardized testing, as a graduation requirement qualification.
