“I am currently a nursing student at Lewis. I started working at Chicago Ridge as a dispatcher almost 2 years ago. Eventually I became and Auxiliary Officer. Earlier this year I was asked if I wanted to go to the part-time academy. I knew it would be a tough task while being a full time nursing student, but I did it anyway and graduated right at the conclusion of summer.”
