I had the honor of presenting Kyle Sullivan with the 2018 scholarship award at the LTCC luncheon in June. As we sat and waited for his name to be called, with tears in his eyes, Kyle told me the heartwarming story of howMitch inspired him to keep working toward his dream of becoming a firefighter. Kyle was volunteering with Lake Valley Fire and struggling with an injury and life challenges and Mitch pumped him up and kept him moving toward his goal. I love how even now, 5 years later, I am still hearing stories of how Mitch inspired and affected others lives so deeply. It is why I started this Fund in Mitch’s honor.
Kyle is a born and raised local who is committed to serve his community in the emergency medical profession. He has completed three degrees at LTCC including Fire science, Spanish, and Liberal Arts with a GPA of 3.9. He plans to continue his education as a paramedic and serve in our local Fire Department, including relief work in other countries.
Kyle is the perfect fit for our scholarship with his devotion to the fire service and our community. Congratulations Kyle!
