“My eyes welled up with tears and I knew my hard work was paying off.”
– Emile Diaz De Leon
Emile Diaz De Leon was hesitant to chase after his dreams under the weight of financial burdens.
He longed for a better life for his family of five but everywhere he turned, he was
met with financial struggles. He dreamed of being a firefighter, but all he could
think about was the monetary loss that he would face pursuing his dream rather than
to support his family.
Then, the Crafton Hills College Foundation stepped in and his world changed. Emile received a scholarship that reduced his financial needs and allowed him to focus on his CHC Fire Academy studies. His confidence grew during the long days of physical training, classes, drills and exams. Achieving his ultimate-goal, Emile is now a Firefighter/EMT.
Because of donors like you Emile’s dream of becoming a firefighter came true. As you can see, your donation matters!
