Recently, Cleveland Community College’s Coordinator and Instructor of Fire and Rescue Training received an email from graduate, Michael Lane. In the email, Lane expressed his gratitude and praise for the Firefighter Academy and the faculty and staff associated with it.
In the email, he wrote:
“I want to take the time to thank you all for everything that you have done. The fire academy was head and shoulders above any other training that I have attended. Cleveland Community College has one of the most personable and hard-working staff, and I am proud to say that I was able to be a part of a professional group.
“While attending the College, I met amazing firefighters that I looked up to and I hope to one day follow in their footsteps. I aspire to one day return to the training grounds to continue furthering my education. For now, I will start a job with Carrboro Fire Department and there is no way that I could have done it without going through the academy and learning the character skills and technical skills that will stay with me for the rest of my career and life. I look forward to seeing you all soon and I wish you all the best.”
