Recipient's comments: "This is an ideal job for me. I need to be doing something useful and helping the public at the same time. I also was anxious to work in this state. I have just completed two months of training and began the job on my own this week. I feel very comfortable and the people here have already gotten to know me. I love the area, too, because it's not so different culturally from the small town where I grew up."
