Andy” W. ’23 embarked on a life-changing adventure during his final semester in High School. With the support of his family, teachers, and friends, Andy delved into the world of Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) training, immersing himself in an intensive Wilderness EMT course offered by the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS).
“Throughout my entire time at Post Oak, I have had many teachers that have impacted my life. During my time in Primary, my teacher, Julie Paraguirre, noticed my passion for service and helping others. She appointed me as the ‘Band-Aid Boy’ of the class. Serving in this role and helping my classmates with minor wounds reaffirmed my affection with the life of a first responder. I am a firefighter/EMT with Southside Fire Department, and I eagerly look forward to continuing my service when I go to Oklahoma University in Norman, OK, next year.”
