Jake Walter was a Skyline High School Alumni and a student athlete playing for the Titan’s Varsity Baseball Team. After high school, Jake returned to Skyline Baseball as a coach and mentor. To honor his legacy of giving back, we have developed the mentorship program that will be provided to recipients of the Jake Walter Scholarship. We will pair recipients with a mentor currently working for the Oakland Fire Department that can help them succeed in fire science programs, EMS training, civil service written and oral exams, and provide general knowledge in preparation for a career as a first responder. The recipient will have the opportunity to work with their mentor in a one-on-one setting through their career journey. The mentor can provide insight on volunteer and educational opportunities that the recipient may take advantage of. Through this relationship we are able to provide mentors with the experience of giving back as Jake did, and give aid to the recipient working towards a career in public service.
