JCCC Paramedic (MICT) Class of 2016
Welcome to Cameron Parks's Personal Fundraising Page!
This Paramedic program is my first step in a long career in helping others!
In the summer of 2014 I decided to take plunge out of the working world and go to school to become a paramedic. I wanted to do something that challenged me and made me happy at the end of the day. I have been surrounded by practicioners my whole life in my direct and extended family and now my wife. At the end of the day I loved hearing them discuss the challenges and successes of their efforts and the impact they made on someones well being. In December when I'm officially a paramedic I look forward to being able to tell the same type of encouraging stories! Being a paramedic is more than the medicine, the work schedule will allow me to spend more time with my son Mason and his soon to be brother/sister.
Thank you for your generosity and support throughout my schooling!!
Who are we?
We are lifesavers and psychiatrists; cardiologists and internists. We see you at your worst, and help pick you up. We can lift when you can't stand; we can hold when you are scared. We are the liaison between circumstance and fate; we are paramedics.
As future paramedics, we will serve many functions. However, we will not be able to help our future neighbors and communities if we are denied the privilege to obtain our certifications and licenses. Unfortunately, to afford these examinations, our class needs well over $10,000.
As we are all full-time students by necessity, and well aware that the career choice we have made is one for duty, not pay, we very humbly thank you for whatever you are able to give to help us reach our goal.

What will we do with the funds?
When will we use the funds?
Our course lasts until 17th December, 2016. We have a few of our examinations during our class schedule before that date; the other tests fall soon thereafter. Again, for a student to be employed as a licensed paramedic, they must gain their Kansas State License and their National Registry Certification as a paramedic.
Where and how will we use the funds?
The practical exams for most students, to obtain their Kansas State License, will take place at Johnson County Community College. The written test, for the National Registry Certification, is a computerized exam that takes place at an approved testing location of the student's individual choosing. There are several of these locations across the Kansas City Metro area, as well as in Lawrence and Topeka.
The funds we raise will be deposited into an account reserved solely for use by the Paramedic Student Association, and through this fund, the students in the paramedic class.
