Wasicek, 21, often drove from his home in George West to his job at University Hospital in San Antonio and then to Victoria College for his Emergency Medical Technician classes before heading back home.
“I drank lots of coffee,” said Wasicek, who was one of 11 students recognized on May 8 at VC’s Student Center for completing VC’s Spring 2018 Emergency Medical Technician training and becoming eligible to sit for the National Registry of EMTs examination for certification.
Wasicek, who plans to also earn his Paramedic Certificate, graduated from George West High School in 2015 not knowing what he wanted to do for a career.
“I like to help people,” Wasicek said. “I ended up here, and I’m glad I did. This program and the instructors are awesome. They let you do a lot and teach you a lot. You learn so much more than what is just in the book. You always have to go by the book, but they teach you even more.”
