Thank you for the opportunity to apply for a scholarship through the
CampusGov / GovLoop. I am currently the Assistant Chief of the
Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Law Enforcement Division
and have been working for the department for over 21 years. I have
dedicated my life and profession to the protection, conservation and
management of the wildlife and fisheries resources and their supporting
ecosystems. In an effort continue to professionalize our organization
and the profession of wildlife and fisheries law enforcement; I have
returned to Louisiana State University to obtain a Masters Degree in
Public Administration. This masters program is a non-thesis program.

Being an avid hunter and fisher and father of a five year old boy brings
awesome opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and share priceless
experiences. A personal ambition of mine is to find opportunities to
get youth involved in hunting and fishing activities. Protection of our
natural resources are essential to the future and providing the best
leadership to help guide our enforcement program in the future is
critical to this effort.

With hardened economic times comes challenges both personally and
professionally, obtaining this scholarship would enable me to continue
my educational ventures, while providing extreme benefit to our agency
and the wildlife and fisheries law enforcement profession.

I respectfully request your consideration in the granting of the
CampusGov / GovLoop scholarship for the continuation of my graduate
school education. Thank you for your efforts, if I can ever be of
assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.
