"I owe many of my own qualities and morals to my dad. I am fiercely loyal to my friends and would be there in an instant, just as he would. I work hard and give 100% to whatever I am doing, just as he has. As I go into my career of social work, I know that my dad has inspired me in the job path that I have chosen. I want to be in a position to help people and to give back to the community. "

Students impact the common good in a meaningful and positive way, just like their Firefighter parents have done their entire career. Our students serve their communities in all facets of industry, including medicine, education, engineering, agriculture, research, law, Military, nonprofit, the Fire Service and many other ways!
