Future Firefighters 2021 Scholarship Recipients
Nadia Scorza is a recipient of a Future Firefighters scholarship at Verdugo Fire Academy in Glendale, CA. Nadia states, “This scholarship will significantly contribute to my future because, without the money that Future Firefighters has provided, I would have had to delay my academy by a year due to lack of financial stability. Now that the idea of academy is feasible, I can start preparing myself for the job opportunities coming up! In addition to this, I will have enough money from my current full-time job by January to sustain myself as I go through the process.”
