Ten years ago, Blaize Boles and his girlfriend submitted a NVCH application for the new Arroyo Grande Villas (AGV) in Yountville. Their application was rejected due to lack of documentation; Blaize said it was a good life lesson.
They resubmitted their paperwork, were approved and the two of them, along with their baby girl moved into their brand new home.
While living at AGV, Blaize worked full time in the restaurant sector AND went to college. He completed his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Sonoma State in 2018 and started working as an Accountant at the Carneros Inn & Spa.
However, Blaize wanted to do more and started researching law school options. He took the LSAT and applied to law schools in December 2019 and started receiving replies in January 2020.
Every law school he applied to accepted him.
Moreover, the University of Arizona Law School offered Blaize a full ride scholarship and the young couple, now with two children, gave notice to NVCH and moved to Tucson this year for Blaize’s post graduate law school.
Today, Blaize is taking 16 units across 5 courses in Civil Procedure, Legal Writing and Research, Contracts, Torts and Academic and Professional Development. Blaize says: “What I enjoy most about law school are the people I’m surrounded by. Everyone is driven, intelligent, and thoughtful. It is great to be surrounded by such accomplished individuals.”
