Examples of conscientious in a Sentence

  1. Angela Underwood Jacobs:

    Chad Wolf, the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, joined the ceremony to honor Underwood and to deliver an American flag to his family. Gov. Gavin Newsom sent an officer of the California Highway Patrol who presented the family with a California flag. In a separate video tribute, Wolf condemned the senseless cowardly violence that took Underwoods life. Officer Underwood gave his life protecting us and we owe him and his family and colleagues a debt of gratitude we will never be able to fully repay, said Wolf. George Phillips, childhood friend of slain Federal Protective Services Officer Dave Patrick Underwood, speaks during a memorial service for Underwood on Friday, June 19, 2020, in Pinole, Calif. Underwood was fatally shot as he was guarding the Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building in Oakland, Calif., amid protests on May 29. (Associated Press) Underwood died from gunshot wounds in a drive-by shooting the night of May 29 as a protest in downtown Oakland that began peacefully sank into chaos. Underwood and a colleague were working that night as contract security officers for the Department of Homeland Securitys Federal Protective Service. Federal authorities say the shooter used the protest as cover for the crime. Authorities say that Underwood was targeted because he wore a uniform. Last week, the FBI announced murder charges against Air Force Staff Sgt. Steve Carrillo. Authorities say Carrillo used the same homemade AR-15-style rifle eight days later to kill a Santa Cruz deputy in a hail of gunfire that wounded four other officers. Carrillo faces separate state charges for the June 6 fatal shooting of Santa Cruz County sheriffs Sgt. Damon Gutzwiller. Authorities allege that Carrillo, 32, had ties to the far-right, anti-government boogaloo movement and had hatched a plan to target federal law enforcement officials during the Oakland protest. Colleagues described Underwood as hard-working, highly respected and conscientious. Friends and family talked of his hearty laugh, his personal style he was a sharp dresser and his giving heart. When he stopped playing baseball as an adult, he donated to local youth organizations, so he could help kids find joy in the sport he loved. Underwood was the kind of guy you went to for advice, his older sister said. Hed always say, Angie, believe in yourself. Work hard, and ask for what you want, which is exactly what our mom and dad would have said.
