Ron Robinson; De La Salle High School, CPFTA Cadet Class of 2002

I graduated from the CPFTA program in 2002, and since then I have gone on to get my EMT and Paramedic license. I don’t think this would have been possible without the scholarship I received that paid for both. I have worked several jobs in the fire service and I have been full time as a firefighter/paramedic in Hazel Crest for over a year. I definitely have to thank all the instructors as well as administrators who gave me the tools and the confidence to pursue my life-long dream of becoming a firefighter.
