Also graduating but unable to attend were: Lydia Parsons and Joseph Truglio. Following the presentation, EMS Training Coordinator Linnenbaugh recognized the lead instructors Steve Watson and Jeff Burroughs. Without their organization we would have had no graduates tonight. Steve Watson and Jeff Burroughs with the assistance of Coordinator Linnenbaugh awarded the class awards. Perfect attendance went Christopher Colletti, Kerri Downes, Nicolette Madanat, Calvin Schmid, and Joseph Truglio. The academic achievement awards went to Christopher Colletti. Robert Linnenbaugh introduced and thanked the Instructors who had part in helping the students become EMT’s. Without such a professional, experienced, and knowledgeable group there is no way we would be able to run our classes at the training institute. The ceremony was completed with the presentation of the Class #11-63-518 to the audience. All in attendance remained for some light refreshments and fellowship. The staff and instructors from the Chester County EMS Training Institute would like to congratulate the entire graduating class.
