The AVID students had an exciting morning welcoming Paul Davis on Monday, March 26th. He is the Captain and EMS shift supervisor with the Camp Lejuene Fire and Rescue Department. The students thoroughly enjoyed hearing about his path from being a student at Trexler Middle School to what he has accomplished today. He explained the educational requirements including the many certifications needed to be a paramedic and firefighter. He emphasized that it is important to keep learning everyday even after you start working in your career. He walked the students through a typical day and what type of calls he might face. The students were able to ask a lot of questions to get to know this career even further. It was such a pleasure to hear him speak.
