Jake Baxter was formerly with the Nacogdoches Fire Department and now serves as an EMT.
Baxter is in the nursing program at Angelina College. He came to speak to Nettie Marshall's 3rd graders about his job duties, on-the-job experiences, what inspired him to take on careers that help others, and how he views being called a "hero".
He brought several of his tools with him to the presentation to show the students. The students were HIGHLY engaged while he spoke and were able to see and TOUCH the tools!
This was such a great experience for our children and one that they will not soon forget!
