Bowling Green High School seniors Moira Messenger, Ruth Valle, and Neveah Harpool have signed commitments to the BGHS EMT Certification Program, a partnership between Med Center Health and the Bowling Green High School Medical Arts Academy. 

The goal is for all three students to complete the program and be career ready and eligible for employment as soon as June 1, 2023.

Student commitment includes completion of the program courses, assessments, and industry certification at BGHS, plus, 10 hours of patient contact, and 24 hours of ridealong experiences with local Emergency Medical Services. Courses are led by Stephen Parrott and Casey McCoy of Med Center Health. 

Assistant Principal Tara Coomes says, “We are excited to partner with Med Center Health to offer these opportunities to our students, as our Medical Arts Academy continues to prepare the next generation of medical professionals for our community. This program is part of our Medical Arts Academy which also offers certifications in Phlebotomy, Certified Nurse Aide, and EKG.”

The Bowling Green High School Medical Arts Academy opened in 2017, to provide hands-on educational opportunities and certifications in a high-demand industry for our community. Currently, 163 Bowling Green High School students are enrolled in courses and pursuing certifications in the Medical Arts Academy.
