Fire Academy Graduation

Ryan's fire academy is over!!! He did an amazing job this year and has accomplished so much. He got his national EMT certificate, trained to be a fireman, lost 40 pounds by changing his diet and doing killer workouts, and survived having to shave his face for the past 5 months. I am so proud of him. He's so amazing! He is the definition of hard work and amazing.
Ryan's class voted for the person that was the most motivating, supportive, would always go the extra mile, and the one who would always help others succeed and RYAN won!!! They called the peer award but other academies call it the Bret Tarver award. But when my dad heard about it he called it the Ms. Congeniality award. We got a good laugh. As the chief was talking I wasn't sure that Ryan was going to win until he mentioned that this person went to orientation with a beard and I knew it was him. I was a little late starting the video.
