May 16, 2009, was a winning day for many people. After figuring the totals, the citizens in the Cimarron Valley Region, the CRH Foundation with the assistance of the Cushing Masonic Lodge raised over $15,000 to be used toward the Paramedic Scholarship Program. This amount would not have been possible if it weren’t for the various sponsorships, teams, and many individuals that donated items for the winning prizes, drawings, and for the Welcome Bags.

Prior to the shot-gun start, Lee Roy Kalka, CRH Foundation President, presented a check to Central Tech for the tuition of three EMTs that are receiving training at Central Tech. Receiving these checks were Patti Pounce, Adult Program Director from Central Tech and Phil Waul, Superintendent of Central Tech.

Central Tech has been truly instrumental in setting up the classes at Central Tech for the Cushing Paramedics. City Manager Steve Spears, Randy DuBois, CRH CEO, and Fire Chief Brent Kerr were also present at the check presentation.
