Before I came to the Idaho Youth ChalleNGe Academy, I was getting into a whole lot of trouble with the police… While, I was at the academy I decided that I wanted to play the system until I later realized that I need to get my act together or else I won’t succeed in the program. I would like to thank all of the Mtn Gems Cadre for helping me daily and pushing me towards success. If it wasn’t for the Director, Deputy, the Commandant, Master Sgt’s Bonner and Edwards, Tech Sgt’s Spencer, Nelson, Moye, Pratt, Mundlin, and Pinque. They have shown me exactly who I want to be and how I’m going to get there. I graduated with my GED. Big THANKS to the teachers for teaching me so much I know now. If I did it being one of the hardest cadets to deal with in the Mtn Gems flight, then, I am sure anybody is fully capable of doing it as well.
