Life Flight pays Luverne School a visit

On Monday October sixth, the Health Science and Industrial Engineering classes of Luverne and Brantley High School got a special treat. Mrs. Polly Dubose, the career coach for Crenshaw County Schools, and Mark Godwin, LBWCC EMT program coordinator, planned a Life Flight demonstration for that day. Mr. Godwin shared his own personal career choices with the students while they waited for the arrival of the helicopter. He is from Andalusia and he graduated with a degree in business from the University of Tennessee Chattanooga on a football scholarship. He had a successful career in business, but in his heart he always wanted to have a career in healthcare. At 44 years of age, he started a new career path, something he always wanted to do. Whenever he was younger, he did not believe that was possible for him… he stressed to the students to go for their dreams and with hard work and dedication they can make it! He stated, “If you choose a job that you love then you will never have to work a day in your life and you will really enjoy your career.” Not too long after he had spoken to the students the helicopter arrived and landed on the football field. The students had the opportunity to meet three Life Flight professionals and were able to look at the helicopter.  Many of the students’ questions were answered and they developed a deeper understanding of this career. Luverne Senior, Alexus Redmon, had a one-on-one interview with Mr. Godwin and the video of the interview can be viewed on the Luverne School website. The demonstration was cut a little short because the Life Flight professionals got a call and they had to go help save lives. However, the students enjoyed the experience and were glad that they got to see the Life Flight professionals in action!
