CATEC Student Awarded Outstanding EMT of the Year

Amanda GimbertCongratulations to CATEC student Amanda Gimbert! Lake Monticello Rescue Squad awarded her the W.R. Copeland Memorial Award for 2018 Outstanding EMT of the Year.

Amanda has served on the Lake Monticello Rescue Squad for the past two years. She is currently a Monticello High School senior enrolled in CATEC’s firefighting class and was in the EMT program last year. Amanda intends to use her EMT and firefighting skills to purse a nursing degree through PVCC.

Here’s what Amanda’s teachers have to say about her:

Amanda was a bright, enthusiastic student in EMT class. She consistently encouraged her classmates to do their best, and pushed herself to do the same. She has excellent teamwork skills and performs equally well as team member and team leader. Amanda did not give up when the course challenged her, instead she pushed harder and worked with her classmates so everyone benefitted and improved. It came as no surprise that Amanda passed her certification test and earned her National Registry EMT certification.” — Catherine Gardner, CATEC EMT instructor

“Amanda is a great student and a leader with excellent firefighting and EMT skills. She has even taught some EMT skills to her firefighting classmates.
– Bobby Elliott, CATEC Firefighting instructor.
