Buffalo Restoration Fire Scholarship


 

As a fire damage repair company, we see the tragic effects of house fires on a regular basis. We see the destruction to people's things, memories, and peace of mind. And we also see the impact that firefighting can have on saving homes from complete destruction. We appreciate what they do and our annual fire scholarship is a way for us, in a our own little way, to say thank you to firefighters and their families for their sacrifices they make to protect homes and lives in our community.

 

Each year we award $1,000 to the child or grandchild of a firefighter in Gallatin, Park, Madison, or Meagher counties. The scholarship is open to all ages and can be used for any kind of educational or enrichment opportunity. We are proud to announce that this year's scholarship was awarded to Stephanie Johnson, daughter of Central Valley Fire Volunteer Brad Johnson. The scholarship application asks about how having a family member as a firefighter has changed or inspired their life.  Stephanie talked about how she spent a lot of her time as a child in the firehouse, doing trainings, events, charity fundraisers etc. She says the lessons she learned are invaluable, including problem solving, managing stress, integrity and compassion. Stephanie's dad passed away this last year and she writes in her application about how the entire firefighter community united and rallied around her with support.

 

Because of what Stephanie learned as the daughter of a firefighter, she plans to spend her life giving back and helping others. She is graduating in May 2014 from Montana State University with a B.S. Cell Biology and Neuroscience and a B.S. in Food and Nutrition. In school she coordinates blood drives, teaches health and nutrition at the detention center and Big Sky Youth Empowerment, started a food system awareness event on campus, and has volunteered for the Tour De Cure and the Trek to the Big Sky. She is the current student liaison for the Montana Student Dietetics Association, Montana Dietetic Association, and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. We felt that Stephanie embodies the values of the firefighter community and has certainly been shaped and inspired by her father's role in the community.

 

We are happy to award Stephanie Johnson with this year's Fire Scholarship! Thank you to all of our applicants and the entire firefighting community! (EJ Porth, Buffalo Restoration)
