Between my state classes and the lessons I have learned at EKU, I have had the knowledge to bring the city up toward modern fire prevention standards.
To be truthful, nothing I have done has solely been me.
Remember that exciting project you did not want to put down?
Even the Mayor and City Manager took the time to say "welcome aboard".
“Down the street from our parsonage lived a 25-year-old Sunday school teacher, Ruth Campbell, who dreamed up fun things for us preacher’s kids that wouldn’t occur to our high-minded parents,” recalls Clapp, now 75 and living in Jeffersonton, Virginia.
“Ruthie, who lived with her mother and stepfather, hatched a plan to take me and a boy next door to the circus in Hartford on July 6.One specific example is my involvement with the inspection records tracking.Prior to my arrival, business owners were complaining that our department was constantly harassing them with repeat inspections.Now the department captains are thrilled with their streamlined workload, the city is happier at the decreased waste and increasing profit, and the business owners are relieved that they are free from conflicting inspection requests.This opportunity was like adding gasoline to my smoldering passion, or like fanning the flames of appetite, or like igniting... The ability to get my hands dirty with a huge variety of tasks has equipped me with more experience than many of my peers have seen in years of work.I truly feel this opportunity has helped me hone my career goals and sharpened my personal focus. I looked the business owner in the eye and told her the truth: "I love it.Through it, I have learned to pursue exactly what I want and to set goals that challenge me to go higher than I previously thought possible. I wake up every day looking forward to this." My hope for other EKU students is that everyone gets the chance to do what they love and I would urge anyone who will listen: pursue your dream job with abandon that borderlines recklessness.With my major in Fire and Safety Engineering Tech, I was pretty sure that the internship would be successful...but I had no idea how much I would enjoy the experience!emergency call, Tyler was able to wake six other people in the small trailer, including two more children, ages 4 and 6, the fire chief said.The pair were found together on a bed in the back room.
