I am deeply humbled to have received The Emerging Leaders Scholarship Award. However, I would like to thank the University of South Florida, faculty & staff of the MPA department and also the FCCMA for providing me with the foundation needed to not only be successful in public service but to also be an inspiration for those to follow. I would also like to give a special thanks to the Robert A. Green ICMA Student Chapter at the University of South Florida. Once again thank you.
