Senator Whitaker and Staff attended the Emergency Medical Technician Class of 2022-1 Graduation Ceremony on Wednesday, July 13, 2022, at the DC Canegata Recreation Center, Christiansted, St. Croix. The last class for emergency responders graduated in 2018, four years later we’re proud to announce that ten individuals have made the conscious decision to dedicate their efforts to saving the lives of people of their community. Senator Whitaker commends Mohammad Idheileh, the class valedictorian, Nikita Charles, the class salutatorian, Calvin Claxton, Keijahni Greenaway, Jamale Griffin, Rosemarie Jarvis-Simon, the class speaker, Bria Roberts, Shenia Roopchand, Sarah Simon, and Midaijah Wilkinson; for enduring thirty-six (36) weeks of classroom instructions and remaining determined to complete the process of becoming a certified Emergency Medical Technician and First Responder. Additionally, the senator thanks the Program Director Mrs. Jacqueline Greenidge-Payne for her commitment to helping her students see this process through and instilling in them that the field of EMS requires you to come with your “cup empty” and that service always comes first. We are very sure that you all will always rise and shine and bring appreciation to the US Virgin Islands.
“Determined, motivated, and skilled, we took on the challenge and prevailed”
-Shenia Roopchand, EMS graduate
