Our Story

Jordan  students who are interested in pursuing a career in emergency medical  technology (EMT/paramedic), nursing, or firefighting may benefit from a  new scholarship that is being offered this year.

The Timothy L.  Correll Memorial Scholarship (in an amount not less than $100 and not  more than $500) will be awarded on an annual basis to a graduating JHS  senior who is going to continue his or her education in any of those  fields, whether it be a two- or four-year program.

Tim was a Jordan High School graduate (class of 1997). Karen Correll said Tim, an EMT and firefighter for the Randolph-Hampton  Volunteer Fire Department, would have approved of the two scholarships,  one to be awarded to a Jordan student and the other to a Randolph  student.

"Tim always had a real heart for helping people and I  know there are kids in our school and the Randolph school district that  have a heart to do this kind of work," said Correll. "We need to feel  like there is some sense to this tragedy and the best way we know to  fill that need is to train young people in careers that help others. We  know that was important to Tim."

"As I did research for the  Foundation, I learned that there will be a 32 percent rise in the need  for this kind of emergency personnel in the near future, especially in  rural areas like ours," said Correll. "I'm sure Tim would be happy to  know that some kids might get the resources they need for this kind of  training."

The Foundation and scholarship is based on donations  and fundraising activities. Correll said they hope to eventually add  grants for continuing training for volunteer firefighters and another  scholarship for persons interested in going back for secondary education  after they've graduated. She indicated that it is her hope that  eventually the scholarship can be renewable.

Everyday,  in every community, EMS responders answer the call to provide  lifesaving care and transportation for our family members, neighbors,  and friends. We  believe in strong, prepared, resilient communities through the power of  education and well-trained emergency service workers, nurses and  committed community volunteers.
