Youth Scholarship Winner Presented Award at ESX

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, June 8, 2011

Brian Roxas of La Crescenta, CA was presented with his $7,500 award for winning first place in the ESA Youth Scholarship Program. Brian graduated from Crescenta Valley High School with a 4.2 GPA. During his high school career, he served as the editor-in-chief of his school's newspaper and represented Crescenta Valley High School at the Scholastic Press Association' Journalism Workshop at Columbia University in New York. Brian will attend Cornell University where he plans to double major in physics and computer science before attending law school to study constitutional law in hopes of becoming a judge.

Brian's stepfather, Alberto Hugo, is a firefighter in Los Angeles County. In his essay Brian wrote of his father, "His example to me taught me that if there's a need and there's something I can do to meet that need, I shouldn't hesitate. Watching him at work…even when he is off-duty…made me determined that I want to spend the rest of my life, helping my community as well.”

In addition to winning the scholarship, ESA paid for Brian and an additional family member to travel to North Carolina and take part in ESX. Accompanying Brian was his aunt, Hannah Soderlund.

ESA began the Youth Scholarship Program in 1996 as a way for the industry to honor and thank our partners in public safety. This year, ESA and our participating chapters gave away more than $47,500 in scholarships nationwide.
