More than 250 Air Force ROTC cadets and enlisted members attended Pathways to Blue to become educated in different officer career fields. They learned about job opportunities, flew in different aircrafts and were mentored by officers.

The goal of the event is to educate people on the importance of creating diverse leaders in the Air Force who will bring creative solutions to diverse problems. It began in 2015 with less than 100 attendees.

Cadets have the opportunity to spend time on the base speaking to officers in the Air Force and gain a better perspective on what life in the Air Force is like.
