Bradley County Emergency Medical Service was invited to speak at the Teen Learning Center Wednesday.

Stan Clark, a paramedic, displayed advanced life support equipment for the students and demonstrated various lifesaving techniques.

They were able to tour the ambulance and ask questions about what a paramedic experiences on a daily basis.

Clark encouraged the students to get their CPR certifications and stay focused on education to pave the way for their futures.

April is "Career & Courage" Month in the Teen Learning Center (the Alternative School for Cleveland City Schools).

“We are having several guest speakers from jobs and careers throughout our community to speak every Wednesday from 11 a.m. to noon. We have three speakers each Wednesday who rotate through three different groups of students ranging from middle to high school, and each session lasts about 20 minutes.

“Topics focus on ‘your job or career/what education your career required/why you love your job/any challenges, etc.’ Then students will have the opportunity to ask any questions,” said Blair Deacon, counselor at the Teen Learning Center.
