GCS receives $300,000 grant for EMT Certification program
Starting this fall, students at Golden Strip Career Center will be able to pursue their dreams of becoming an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).
Thanks to a generous $302,750 grant from the Greenville Health Authority, Golden Strip will become the first GCS Career Center to create an EMT Certification Training Program.
“With our current programming there are many barriers to participation for our students,” says Eric Williams, the Executive Director of Career and Technology Education at Greenville Public Schools, “This grant allows us to fully fund and furnish a state-of-the-art EMT classroom and we could not be more grateful for this.”
The program will open to GCS seniors during the 2022-23 school year.
