JMG organized a First Responder Celebration Day at CMS on Monday, October 28. We had the opportunity to celebrate the service of our local responders as students lined the hallways cheering on the responders as they entered the building.
We then gathered in the library where each responder spoke about their career path and the critical need for our young people to explore careers within public service.
Eighth graders Kaylee Fyfe and Alexia McDonald highlighted the important role of a dispatcher. “First responders wouldn’t know where to go without their communication.”
