Tanner Morton (pictured) took all the available courses in the Fire & Emergency Services career pathway at McMinnville High School (MHS) before graduating. This month, he was hired by the Amity Fire District as an EMT.
“I’m working on my pre-requisites to become a paramedic,” he said.
Morton said he came into the pathway with a good idea of the direction he wanted to take. “My grandfather was a fire captain in Mac, and my dad was a volunteer EMT.”
