The College’s Emergency Medical Technology program has seven lined up to be sworn into the Emergency Medical Services profession. With a ceremony set to be held in the Georgia Lewis Theater of the CCC main campus on Saturday, June 12, 2021, at 10 a.m., the graduates will be pinned Emergency Medical Technicians/EMTs.

Slated to address the graduates is Pafford EMS supervisor George Scott Swan, who holds the title of interim operations manager for the Mississippi mid-Delta region of Leflore and Washington counties and Starkville. He began working as an EMT in 1996 and has since given intermittent service to the profession. Over the past 15 years, he has gained much experience in several different management positions, such as assistant field supervisor and operations supervisor. Swan has also spent 12 years in the U.S. Army Airborne Infantry, where he reached the rank of staff sergeant and served two active combat tours in Iraq. He resides on the Mississippi Gulf Coast with his wife of 16 years, six adult children, and his Chihuahua, Brees.

The ceremony is set for a limited capacity to allow for social distancing.
