A few students from the Emergency and Fire Management program had the opportunity to attend Wood County Fire School. We were fortunate enough to get photos of the ITLS High threat environment class where students learned how to triage and operate in hot zones and the Elevator Extraction and High elevation rescue class where students learned how to operate and rescue in tight spaces. The remaining students attended Basic Fire Skills class at Lubeck VFD, where they got to practice all of their Firefighter 1 skills.

Recently, our students from ProStart attended Hospitality University at the Greenbrier Resort. Mariah Caplinger was chosen to intern with one of the chefs, where she helped prepare food for the banquets. The students also had the opportunity to listen to professionals in the hospitality industry from across the state. There were panel discussions and Q & A sessions about potential issues within our state. They also had the opportunity to meet Governor Jim Justice and Baby Dog. They heard candidates running for governor and visited vendors set up from around the state advertising their programs. The students who attended were Dillon Fox, Mariah Caplinger, Isabella Ingram, and Olivia Lambey.
