My name is Ronnie Dickison, I live in Grenada, CA. I am married with two children. I have lived in Siskiyou County all my life therefore I am very invested in the ecological diversity of our county.
I am writing to express my interest in the position of Fish & Habitat Assistant at the Department of Fish & Game Mt. Shasta Fish Hatchery. Given my years of experience working at the Irongate Hatchery and also at the Mt. Shasta Fish Hatchery I feel with confidence that I would be an asset.
Since I have been with DFW I have taken the initiative to advance myself and learn all that is involved with fish and habitat sustainability. I have been in charge of spawning fish, supervising the hatching process to releasing fish into rivers and lakes, even from the air and horseback.
This is a position that I am confident I can excel. I would appreciate your consideration for this job
Thank You, Ronald Dickison

During my employment with Mr. Richardson I hauled logs to various places around Northern California and into Oregon. Also, I helped move heavy equipment with a lowboy when it was time to move to another job.
I started with Dan Chase as a ranch hand with a variety of jobs. I have learned to irrigate, install irrigation systems, pivots and wheel lines. While working for Mr. Chase I also ran lots of different equipment such as, bull dozer, escalator, backhoe, swather, balers, harrow beds, disc, plow, hay rakes. During my time with Mr. Chase I also studied and got my Class A driver licenses which opened me up to drive hay truck, dump truck, lowboy, belly dump & end dump.
