Branson Byrer is a senior here at WCHS/WACC and is currently taking Fire Rescue II & a Work Based Learning Capstone. He's also previously taken Fire Rescue I, Medical Terminology, & Biomedical Science here in the WACC.
Branson says that he's always had a interest in the medical field, which is why he first started taking these courses, but once he completed Fire Rescue I he was hooked.
Outside of school, Branson is taking an EMT- Basic class, works 12 & 24 hour shifts at the Fire Station, and is on the Plain Township (Leesburg) Volunteer Fire Department.
Upon graduation, Branson plans to attend Ivy Tech Community College to receive his paramedic license, with an end goal of becoming a Firefighter.
