    Ranger Rise Scholarship
    My name is Evan Heck and I am a Laramie native in my sophomore year at the University of Wyoming. I am a full time in-person student in 5 classes this semester. I am a member of the University of Wyoming Hockey Team and am President of the team as well. I am doing duel majors with accounting and finance. I have had Internships in both accounting and finance and tend to lean more towards the finance side. I have faced quite a few challenges as a student at UW. I came in as an non-traditional student and was forced to participate in Saddle Up. I went to my initial advising meeting and told them I could not come to Saddle up due to me working full time to pay for the roof over my head and the food on my plate. They told me that wasn't a good enough reason to miss and I needed to "re-evaluate my priorities". Due to this I started college with an F on my transcript due to Saddle up. I now am a second semester sophomore and have passed every class I have taken while working 40+ hours a week. Luckily I was able to have Saddle Up removed from my transcript this winter break due to some policy changes in the University. Another challenge I have faced as a student at UW is loading to much onto my plate. Being a full-time student, full-time employee, and an Athlete is a lot to have on my plate. In some scenarios this has effected my grades, work output, or athletic performance. Managing my schedule has taught me a lot of good scheduling skills and gave me an ability to manage my workload a lot better than my peers. In my work experience I have been blessed to experience a traditional office setting and a more entrepreneurial space. I had an accounting internship with a company called ATBS in the UniWyo building. ATBS does taxes for 1099 truckers and therefore I had to deal with a lot of pretty abusive clients. I gained a lot of experience over my 8 month internship and at the end was offered a full time position that I ended up turning down. I then pursued a College Financial Representative Internship with Northwestern Mutual but ended up leaving because I couldn't make ends meet. I am now a Financial Specialist at State Farm and am super excited about the opportunity. As I previously mentioned I am a hockey player and do most of my volunteering and activism through that. I volunteer as the coach of the U19 girls youth team. I coach girls from age 8 to 19 all at once. I have found the huge age gap challenging to navigate but it is something I am super passionate about. My position as UW Hockey President has given me a voice when it comes to the funds for the rink. I have spent a lot of time advocating to city council for more money to the rink as well. I believe this scholarship will help me navigate my busy schedule by taking some financial stress off my shoulders. I appreciate your time and hope you will consider me for you scholarship. I also appreciate the precedent this scholarship sets for other businesses and one day hope to replicate it.
