SLCC Emergency Medical Technician Students Receive $11,000 in Scholarships from AT&T
Date:12/6/2019

In a ceremony where words like “commitment,” “bravery” and “gratitude” were used frequently, six students in Salt Lake Community College’s (SLCC) Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Program—Maria Mazzel Delgado, Jake Fisher, Justine Hanscom, Hevelyn Cidade Klegues, Mark Rodgers and Chelise Schaefer—were awarded the AT&T Public Safety Hero Scholarship to support their first responder training.

Four scholarship recipients are graduating from SLCC’s EMT program this month and two are prepared to begin the 13-week program in January.

“This scholarship from AT&T has taken a financial weight off my shoulders,” said scholarship recipient Jake Fisher. “It means the world to me. I know that it will help me, and my fellow students reach our educational and professional goals.”

Nearly 200 SLCC EMT students complete this certification each year and graduates of this program are currently working in hospitals, fire departments, ambulance companies, and a wide variety of other public service-oriented careers.

“Salt Lake Community College’s EMT program is designed to give students access to knowledge, skills and hands-on experience at the highest level,” said Gary Cox, Interim Dean of the School of Applied Technology and Professional Development. “These scholarships help students overcome financial barriers to allow them to concentrate on their learning, training and experience and really focus on finding meaningful careers, helping people in need, keeping our communities safe and saving lives.”

“AT&T is committed to education, to building connected communities and to keeping people safe by supporting our first responders,” said Tara Thue, President, AT&T Utah. “We are honored to partner with SLCC in its efforts to provide education and career opportunities for dedicated students who are willing to be on the front lines as first responders.”
