Jody is a freshman from Tehachapi, California, majoring in social science.
"I came to Fresno Pacific because I wanted God to be the center and core of my future career as a teacher. I feel that FPU will enable me to become a teacher who will represent God's love to youth in the classroom. I hope to grow ever nearer to God and be constantly growing in the Spirit. I plan to graduate in four years with my BA and continue in getting my credential so that I can begin teaching at the earliest possible time.
"Without the scholarship money generously provided by donors to FPU, I would not have been able to attend a school of faith. Thanks to the donors' kind hearts I am able to receive the training necessary to become a strong woman of God who will enlighten the minds of teenagers to the wonders of history."
