BMHS PrideTime Reporter
Recently, PrideTime was able to interview a student that is currently in the EMT class in hopes of sharing the knowledge of such a wonderful program to all McMahon kids.
Did you know that through a connection with Norwalk Community College, McMahon students are able to take the EMT class offered for everyone? Even if it’s too late to apply as the program started this January, it’s never too late to notice how great it can be for McMahon students interested in the medical career. Pride Time met with one of these students.
The McMahon EMT trainee explains that the classes are Mondays and Thursdays from 6pm to 10pm-and sometimes on Saturdays at 8am to 4pm. In these classes, the students, who are not just McMahon kids, but adults, read over and study their EMT textbook as they are taught by a certified EMT and paramedic. Eventually, they will do labs.
The student tells Pride Time that the studying is not hard as acquiring all this new knowledge is a grand opportunity and that hanging out with other McMahon students as she learns is a fun experience.
We asked some questions to get more info.
Pride Time reporter: What is your favorite part about the class?
EMT student: “Is just acquiring all this new knowledge and I love it-even though it’s four hours, I’m never like, looking at the clock and hoping for it to end like I am in some of these classes that I have in school but um I think it’s nice to know that you’re gonna be able to help people after you complete this class. Like you’re going to make a real difference in people’s lives and you’re gonna see a real difference in people’s lives.”
PrideTime Reporter: What are some words you have for McMahon?
EMT student: “Just that there’s a lot of opportunities in this school for whatever job you want to do so, look for them and you’ll be surprised at what you can find.”
So don’t let those opportunities pass you McMahon!
