Graduate Butte College 51st Fire Academy

The Butte College Fire Academy program is very demanding and was worth every minute of the hard work. It was a great program. I was the only gal in the 51st Academy and everyone was very supportive. There was a lot of mutual respect. I went right to work as a firefighter straight out of the academy.
