Student Spotlight: Julia Dwight ’18, Tess Haskin ’17, and Steven Taylor ’17

On February 24, 2016, Chief Colin Altman ’93 of Miami Township Fire-Rescue (MTFR) swore in three Antioch College students (Julia Dwight, Tess Haskin, and Steven Taylor) as active volunteers, the first swearing in of Antioch students since the College’s reopening.

Said Chief Colin Altman: “We are very proud to renew our long affiliation with Antioch College; these three students, all EMTs, exemplify the values of Horace Mann and the College, and truly win victories for humanity every shift.”

Antioch students have been fighting fires and saving lives since the late 1800s. Students have been working with the Township since the late 1950s, first through the Antioch College Fire Department (“Maples”) and later directly through MTFR. Today, students work alongside other members as firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs). MTFR is a Coop employer, and all three of the students sworn in have worked for the department through the cooperative education program.

“Being sworn in as a member of MTFR is definitely a right of passage. It’s a public declaration of our commitment to serve and protect our community. It also symbolizes our acceptance into the MTFR family!” said Julia Dwight.

Congratulations to Julia, Tess and Steven!
