EMT course proposed to obtain student senate support
Nevin Price, sophomore of Alliance, NE, came in to introduce the idea of starting an EMT course on campus. Price had put together a petition that so far had 107 signatures on it. He and several others hope to make it a course for credit.
“I think the college could benefit from it, and the community could benefit from it,” Price said.
Nisha Durand, Chief Justice also said that the class would not just be good for HPER students, but for the entire campus.
Price requested a letter from Student Senate to show that senate is supportive.
“It’s gonna be hard to say no to it when there’s so much support behind it.”
Senate moved to provide a letter of support for Price.
