Daughter of

Aliza continues her studies in Social Work at Millersville University. Her career goal is to use her social work education to assist as many people as possible, with a focus on children with mental health challenges.

She plays club softball at her university and gets involved in on-campus sponsored events as much as time allows. Aliza served as a Big Buddy mentor at Comfort Zone Camp in May 2022 where she worked one on one with a little girl and guided her through her camp weekend. She is currently applying to volunteer at Lancaster Community Action Partnership to be a peer counselor for victims of domestic abuse and to assist with children’s programs.

Captain Todd Gibney shares, “Aliza’s choice to pursue social work was influenced by a combination of her upbringing and kind-hearted nature, just like her father, along with her personal experience surrounding the death of her father. While the void of losing her father will never be filled, Aliza intends to use her experiences to help others, just like her father did.”

Aliza’s previous scholarship was made possible with support from
Motorola Solutions Foundation, MissionSquare Retirement Memorial Scholarship Fund, the National Association of State Fire Marshals, and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
