To the Candilora / Jones Families:
I am writing this letter to express to you how grateful I am for receiving the 10-07 Scholarship. Before I attended the academy, I was driving a semi-truck out of Ogden. I was very stable, but felt like I needed more in life. That is when I decided to join the Weber State Police Academy. I budgeted and planned my finances out and had a safety net of funds. I was way off on my calculations for equipment and everything else. Due to my miscalculations, funds have been extremely tight. I can only work part time while attending the academy and have been quite stressed over finances.
This scholarship will ensure that I will remain financially stable as I finish up the academy. I can put my mind at ease on finances and put my heart and soul into the rest of my training. Although I am currently not hired on by a police department, I am confident an agency will see my hard work and dedication and bring me on very soon. Your scholarship will allow me to train far more than I ever thought and remain financially secure. I plan to be working full time as a police officer by the end of the year and serving my community.
Once again, I would like to thank you for choosing me for this scholarship. You have helped me out more than you can imagine and I look forward to attending the 10-07 Charitable Fund 5K Walk / Run next year and giving my support.
