I drove by Heritage Peak the other day and was very grateful of all of my teachers but especially for you [Scott S.] and your love for teaching. You made it fun yet life changing. I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am for your example and everything you taught me! It really did make a difference in my life.
Currently I am doing an internship in Davis at a financial planning firm in which I analyze assets in client portfolios and make recommendations about possible alternatives. I love it and I know that it’s because of what you taught me in those classes early on in my education regarding investing that guided me to where I am now. I plan on getting my CFP within the next two years and then plan on working for a wealth management/retirement planning firm.
My job in Utah while I attend school is managing 17 employees at a campus help desk in which we cover a wide variety of responsibilities including ticket sales, marketing on campus, and a list that runs on too long in my opinion. It’s crazy to think of myself in that position attending meetings with VP’s of the school and being a leader. If you would’ve told me when I was 12 walking into your Pre Algebra class that I would be where I am today I wouldn’t believe it!
Thanks again for your impact and all you did for me. I hope all is well with your family.
