Hero and Project Description: 

Powers’ and Schmiesing’s innovative teaching idea, “Tomorrow’s Heroes,” focuses on implementing an elective EMT course at New London-Spicer High School as well as CPR courses at the middle school level. These courses will include demonstrations, hands-on practice, opportunities at volunteer or paid-on-call departments, and certification tests to be registered as first responders. Students will develop skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)-focused careers and technical education, medical background, and community service. This will allow the students to become an asset to the local community, law enforcement agencies and fire departments nationwide. Through the support of the Voya grant, Powers and Schmiesing will provide students these opportunities to begin serving their communities and our nation.
