Nine students in NWTC's emergency medical services programs have received scholarships from Aurora BayCareMedical Center and the BayCare Clinic Foundation. The awards were issued in collaboration with Dr. Christopher Sorrells, an emergency medicine physician with BayCare Clinic.
NWTC students Amanda Corrao, Deb Agate, Elliot Chier, Hayden Weininger, Liam Ledford, Melissa Bushmaker and Samantha Verhagen each received grants in support of their work toward becoming emergency medical technicians. Sarah Daul and Servando Garcia each received grants toward their work to become paramedics.

“The EMTs and paramedics are a vital extension of the emergency medical care we provide our patients in the emergency department,” Sorrells said. “This collaboration with NWTC, LTC, Aurora BayCare Medical Center and the BayCare Clinic Foundation offers a great opportunity for us to support these up-and-coming professionals while simultaneously contributing to the long-term health of our community.”
NWTC is a certified training center for emergency medical technician and paramedic education and is a regional training center for the American Heart Association.
