Congratulations to Joshua Macdonald from the Thorp Class of 2020.

He recently received $500.00 for obtaining the National EMS Certification while he was in high school. The Department of Public Instruction offers this incentive to students through the CTE Incentive Grant, with this the school also receives $1000.00 to use towards enhancing CTE courses.

The exciting part is that Joshua found that the Health Science pathway was his calling. Since receiving his certification he has worked with the Thorp Fire Dept., is currently working EMS with Taylor County and the Owen-Withee Curtis Fire Dept. along with a full-time position with Aspirus MedEvac.

He is also attending NTC for Paramedic and plans to continue his education in the health field to become a doctor.
