JARED LINDO, CLASS of 2009
B .S., Civil Engineering
Emphasis in Structures
I have valued my time as a Fresno State student. Every moment has been filled with learning and growing experiences inside and outside the classroom. Fresno State has given me much more than a first-class education, it has given me the opportunity to build character and grow as an individual.
Three years ago, when I received my initial scholarship from the Bulldog Pride Fund, I realized there were others in the community who held the same values that I have found at Fresno State. The Bulldog Pride Fund is fueled by understanding individuals in the community who have entrusted their earnings and treasures to support students. This great generosity has made it possible for me to be here today.
My personal and professional success after I graduate won’t just be found in what I have achieved, but also in what I give back to. For the rest of my life I pledge to continue to contribute to the Bulldog Pride Fund and to donate my time as a mentor to future students.
I offer heartfelt and sincere thanks to the donors to the Bulldog Pride Fund who have helped make my educational dream come true. And, thank you to those who are joining me in helping fulfill future students’ educational dreams, too.
