Thank You from Matt Hassig

Dear 10-07 Fund,

I wanted to give you an update on how life is for me after receiving the scholarship and graduating from Weber State’s Police Academy. During my graduation I was awarded a plaque from the Utah POST Board for Excellent Ethics during my time at the academy.

I was hired by my home town Police department of Ogden City and am currently a patrol officer. I received my job right after graduation and could not be more grateful of the opportunities that have been presented to me. Since being with Ogden City I have also become of member the department’s Honor Guard. Within the first two months of working with the city I received an excellent work certificate and I strive every day to make a difference in anyone’s lives that I come in contact with while on or off duty.

Along with being a Police Officer I am currently enlisted as a Sergeant in the United States Army Reserves where I’ve utilized my experiences from being a Police Officer to become a better soldier every day. I use the skills I learned in school and while on duty within my Army career to help in my decision making and also have become a better mentor and leader for the soldiers I lead in the 744th Engineers.

The passion I have for being an officer has inspired a few of my friends to even start their paths in pursuing a career in policing. One of my friends was hired by Roy City after graduating from Weber State’s Police Academy after my graduating class.

Ultimately, I wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for the opportunity the foundation helped provide me.
