Jr. FF Tyler Karriker has received a scholarship awarded by the N.C. State Fire Association. In a brief ceremony Tuesday night, Chief Tommy Cole from the State Fire Association presented Tyler with the scholarship which is awarded to those dedicated to the Fire Service and are working toward obtaining college degrees in fire related fields. Tyler will start his Associates Degree at RCCC this August. He is currently in class working towards obtaining his EMT Basic Certification and has nearly 75% of his NC Firefighter Certification completed which is very impressive for someone that is still 2 months shy of his 18th birthday. Keep up the good work Tyler. You make us proud. #motivated#youngleader#showyourpeerstheway#settheexample
