UNION COUNTY — Some students at the Union County Career Center recently had a class taught them by a trio of very special teachers who literally flew in to teach them.

In a statement released Friday, Union County Career Center Director Kevin Morrow stated that, on “Thursday, January 28, 2016, Spartanburg Regional One Helicopter and Crew flew into Union County Career Center to advise Health Science students about their careers. On board were Tom (pilot), Lori (flight paramedic) and Tony (flight nurse paramedic) who each have different responsibilities in the flight of Regional One.”

Morrow stated that “students learned about steps needed to become part of the flight crew, various advantages and disadvantages to the jobs, education requirements and overall likes and dislikes of the jobs. Students were able to ask questions and look inside the helicopter to view the equipment and how a patient is transported.

Thursday was not the first time Regional One has visited the center.

“Spartanburg Regional One has landed for the second year in a row to allow our UCCC students to experience the helicopter up close and speak one-on-one with an experienced flight crew,” Morrow stated. “This is a great opportunity for our students who are mostly 10-11th graders with an interest in health care careers.”

Morrow said the visit by Regional Once is part of the Health Science course’s efforts to introduce students to the various careers available in the Health Science field.

“”As part of the Health Science course offered here at UCCC, students are exposed to various health care careers, and we are always searching for volunteers to come and speak to our classes about their careers,” Morrow stated. “UCCC greatly appreciates Spartanburg Regional One and crew for taking our Health Science students to new heights.”
