Last week, Mr. Ksiezopolski taught his EMT students how to properly take manual blood pressures. These students have been hard at work practicing many new skills recently so that they can be ready to take their State Test to become licensed EMT's in the spring! 

We recently welcomed a new instructor to our program, as well: Ms. Alicia Elder joined the WACC family in January and will help teach the EMT students, along with Mr. Ksiezopolski. We are happy to have her on our team!
