The Frankie Valente Memorial EMS Endowed Scholarship
EMTs and paramedics are vital to every community. As first responders, it is their duty to have the skills and training to provide life saving aid to an individual during some of the most trying situations in their lives. These amazing people always put stranger’s lives first, sometimes sacrificing their own to provide care and comfort to people in need.
The Frankie Valente Memorial EMS Endowed Scholarship is a permanent and everlasting tribute to Frankie – an EMT who passed away on the job in January 2018. Frankie’s parents, Joyce and Anthony Valente hope to support students in MCC’s EMT and paramedic program who embody the motto “Helping Others, Help Others”.
