Fire Science Student Earns Scholarship
Siarah McCoy, a 2018 graduate of Lebanon High School and the WCCC Fire Science program, recently earned a $500 scholarship from the Warren County Fire Chiefs Association. She wants to continue her education and become a paramedic. Siarah works for the Clinton Warren Joint Fire District as a volunteer firefighter. She said she has wanted to be a firefighter since her freshman year of high school.
WCCC is helping to meet the need for more public safety personnel by providing training for high school and adult students in firefighter and emergency medical technician certification. The WCCC Public Safety Advisory Committee is helping review and revise the curriculum to ensure students are prepared for the workforce upon completion. WCCC’s public safety programs have a new training facility, and have a record number of incoming juniors this year in the high school program.
