More about me...
Upon Blaiz's graduation from the Saucon Valley School District in 2017, he immediately went into the Marines. He served in the United States Marine Corps from 2017-2021. He served with the 1st Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment as an Infantry Assaultman specializing in rocketry, explosives, and various advanced breaching techniques. In 2019, Blaiz was deployed to Iraq working as a Security Force for Marine Special Operations Command Teams. A year later in 2020, he transferred to the 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment and became a Designated Marksman specializing in long range reconnaissance and target engagement. He was then deployed to Jordan and achieved the rank of Corporal. In 2021, Blaiz was promoted to Sergeant after being Honorably Discharged. Since then, he has been attending the Allentown Police Academy and serving the Lehigh Community as a Police Officer for LUPD. Blaiz plans on continuing his career with the department.
Why I enjoy working at Lehigh..."After my miliary service, I recognized that I was extremely interested in serving and protecting those with cultural, religious, and ethnic differences. I found that it creates an entirely different perspective in life when you involve yourself with others from different parts of life. Lehigh University was not only close to home, but also fit the variety of individuals who fit my interest to learn about. My goal as a Lehigh University Police Officer is to create a foundation of partnership between myself, the students and staff. I plan on developing a connection with the students to make them feel at home and aware that we are there to help support their educational mission."
