As I approach the final year of my graduate program I look forward to
acquiring the knowledge necessary to become a competent and

compassionate public servant. In my future work as a public

administrator, my focus will be on serving the public interest and

fulfilling the needs of my community. By efficiently, effectively, and

economically solving community issues, I hope to provide solutions that

will benefit both current and future generations, as well as providing

equal opportunity to all.

By serving as a local government administrator, my work will have a

direct affect on the daily lives of citizens. My decisions will

determine their ability to receive clean drinking water, have safe and

well-maintained roads, and be able to provide their children with a

proper education. I look forward to working with community leaders,

elected officials, and other public servants to provide the highest

level of these services to all members of my community. I hope to

create programs that will allow our public school system to continue to

successfully educate and guide children toward future success. I would

like to engage in the creation of community parks, and recreation

facilities, that allow families and community members to come together

and enjoy the benefits of their community. By building community

networks, and engaging community members in the work of local

government, I hope to strengthen the bonds of community. This will

allow me to provide community members with the best programs and

services possible, allow me to reach my ultimate goal of serving the

public interest.

As a graduate assistant at the Hugo Wall School at Wichita State

University, I have already begun my work as a public servant by working

with elected officials and public administrators within my community.

This real-world experience, along with my academic record and strong

commitment to public service, qualifies me as a deserving candidate for

the GovLoop Scholarship. This scholarship will provide me with the

means to continue my academic and professional development and allow me

to continue my pursuit towards a career in public service.
