There are so many individuals who have helped me get to where I am today. Their time and effort have given me the ability to succeed in school, the workplace, and in life. I would like to thank all of the wonderful teachers and administrators I have had throughout my years from elementary school to my senior year in high school. They have encouraged me in countless ways to get the most out of my education. I am also grateful for coaches who have helped me develop both athletically and as a young man.
I would like to thank the local associations and businesses who awarded me scholarships. These include, J&R Fisheries, Seward PTA, the Alaska SeaLife Center, Seward Volunteer Ambulance Corps, and Seward High School. These funds will help me in many ways during my time at Montana State University; and are very much appreciated. I would also like to thank my amazing parents and grandparents who have given me so much love and support. They have helped me stay on track and encouraged me every step of the way.
