“My father is always giving. ”

My father is my hero. He began his career as the first person in our family to go to college. He received his Bachelor degree in education with a certificate in special needs education. My father taught school for 36 years before being forced out by the state of NC. During that time my father, as well as the rest of my family, started an ambulance service in the small town I grew up in. While teaching high school my father also went back to school and got his Paramedic certification and after that started teaching the Paramedic program at the local community college making it one of the best in the state of NC, that led to my career choice as a Paramedic in the state of NC, which I have been doing now for 6.5 years. My father has always give back to our community without anything expected in return. I look to him as my hero and the students he has taught think very highly of him as well.
