Students now certified EKG techs

Seniors in the health technologies program at Jefferson County Joint Vocational School are now certified EKG technicians after passing an exam through the National Healthcare Association. It was the first time the exam was given in the school program and five students made the grade including, pictured from left, Rayven Ellis of Toronto High School, Haylee Blackburn of Indian Creek High School, Paige Boals of Harrison Central High School, Kacey Carothers of HCHS and Sierrah Walker of ICHS.
