Thu, Dec 15, 2016
Nine students enrolled in the emergency medical services program at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College have been awarded financial scholarships from Aurora BayCare Medical Center and BayCare Clinic Foundation.
Scholarship recipients include Robert Aschenbrenner, Michael Putthoff, Jonathon Llanas and Erica Lehrer, all of whom received $1,000 grants to support their training to become paramedics.
Hillary Kuchta, Rebecca Wolff, Angela LaPlant, Kimberly Davister and Emily Seifert each received $500 grants in support of their work toward becoming emergency medical technicians.
“The paramedics and EMTs are a critical extension of the emergency medicine we provide in the ER,” Sorrells said. “This collaboration with NWTC, Aurora BayCare Medical Center and the BayCare Clinic Foundation is one way we can support these professionals and contribute to the overall health of the community.”
The EMS department at NWTC is a certified training center for emergency medical technician and paramedic education and a regional training center for the American Heart Association.
