Emergency Medical Technology Program coordinator Bill Justiz (above center) presented the awards during the July Triton College Board of Trustees monthly board meeting.

For the fall 2016 semester, the award was presented to Dale Ryant (above right) of Brookfield. Ryant has completed associate degrees in Criminal Justice, Fire Science and Nuclear Medicine at Triton and he currently works as a nuclear technologist and teaches at the National Latino Education Institute in Chicago. He next plans to enroll in paramedic school and pursue a career as a police officer.

“The EMS program (at Triton) is excellent,” Ryant said after accepting his award. “I recommend this program to a lot of people and a lot of the younger guys coming up.”

For the spring 2017 semester, Rachel Hindery of River Forest received the award. At Triton, Hindery has worked as a writer for the 5th Avenue Journal student newspaper and served as a staff member for Triton’s Camp Gadget summer program.

“I’ve had a wonderful opportunity to learn from the instructors as well as my classmates during study sessions before and after my classes,” Hindery said.

The award is named for former Triton College EMT student and U.S. Air Force Senior Airman who was killed in 2010 while serving in Afghanistan.
