The Rotary Club of Bensalem honored Bucks County Technical High School student Tim Schwartzer at their July 15th luncheon meeting held at Michael’s Restaurant on Street Road. Tim was chosen by the Rotary club to receive a college scholarship in recognition of his stellar academic record and dedication to his future career.
Tim attended BCTHS for all four years of his high school education and completed the school’s Emergency Medical Services program with a 3.9 GPA. As part of his course work, Tim earned his EMT and Firefighter 1 certifications, which he has put to good use as a volunteer at Bensalem EMS and Nottingham Fire Company.
Tim’s skills as an EMT are among the best in the nation. This past year, he competed in Skills USA’s First Aid and CPR competition and finished in first place at the state level and second place at nationals.
The scholarship Tim has received will be put to good use, as he intends to further his education at Penn College of Technology in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, where he will continue to study Emergency Medical Services.
After completing his education, Tim hopes to pursue a career with a paramedic engine company, which would allow him to combine his passions for both firefighting and EMT work.
The Rotary Club of Bensalem is proud to have such and outstanding student and young man in our community and we wish him the best of luck in all of his future endeavors.
