Cleveland State Community College and the Bradley County Commission created the Danny Lawson Scholarship in 2021 to offer Advanced EMTs the opportunity to become paramedics at no cost to the student. The partnership has expanded to offer EMTs the opportunity to be trained as Advanced EMTs also at no cost to the student.
Dr. Ty Stone, CSCC President, attended the Bradley County Commission meeting on Monday to celebrate this partnership which benefits the entire community.
