Air Evac makes special delivery to Altamaha Technical College

Air Evac of Jesup surprised the Altamaha Technical College practical nursing students with a special delivery Thursday, Nov. 29. Air Evac pilot, Tony Sumrow, landed his Bell Long Ranger helicopter, carrying the precious cargo of program completion pins, on the campus’ open field before 13 excited students, faculty and staff, as well as a few curious onlookers.

Students will receive the pins after completing the 12-month practical nursing program Dec. 6 at a pinning ceremony in the Jesup Campus Auditorium at 7 p.m. Sumrow was supported by flight nurse Chad Lariscy, R.N., and flight paramedic Ken Herrin and director, Donald Mixon.

The students, led by instructors Betty Manning and Virginia Lea Rothwell, as well as Patsy Wilkerson, Dean for Academic Affairs, cheered for the safe arrival. Rhett Brenner, local Herff Jones sales representative, handed off the pins, prized symbols of achievement.
