As a future chef and business owner, my success, in part, relies on receiving a

scholarship. To receive the funds from a scholarship will alleviate my financial concerns,

and will allow me to allow me to concentrate on the requirements needed to obtain my

degree in Culinary Arts.

As a graduate of East High School, I finished with a 3.5 grade point average.

During high school my primary focus was on athletics, such as football, baseball, and

basketball. Some of my extra curricular activities included: playing bass guitar in a

band, restoring classic cars with family members, as well as volunteering at homeless

shelters and soup kitchens in Pueblo and Colorado Springs.

Being a resident of Pueblo, I have had a great deal of experience in the work

field. I was employed at the Trane Company for three years as a fin press operator,

which I thoroughly enjoyed. While employed at Colorado Saw and Tool, I began my

career as a machinist apprentice and worked my way up to quality control supervisor

and assistant foreman. I have vast experience in the food service industry, such as prep

cooking while employed at the Don Carlos Mexican Restaurant. Working my way up

the ladder as a prep cook, I had the privilege of being trained by the Head Chef. He

taught me the basic fundamentals of cooking as well as sanitation.

Many of the activities I do with my children include: watching them participate in

athletics, and helping them excel in all aspects of academics....
