Vol State in the News

You may remember Vol State EMS student Doyle Walker and this now famous picture of him helping a runner at the finish of the Music City Marathon. Now Doyle Walker is being honored for going above and beyond. As the Tennessean reports, he will receive a special pin next week from the Sumner County Emergency Medical Services. Doyle will be graduating tomorrow. It's important to point out that he was just one of 25 EMS students volunteering in the medical tents and at the finish line during the marathon. Quite frankly, we think EMS folks go above and beyond on a regular basis. Here's a salute to all of our EMS graduates, faculty and alumni!

The Pioneer softball and baseball season came to a close with both teams making it to the TCCAA Region VII tournament. The men had the best run, winding up in the finals versus Columbia State. Unfortunately, as Craig Harris with the Tennessean reports, the bats fell silent and the team lost. Columbia was on a streak. Congrats to both of our teams for making the tournament and having good seasons. And a special thanks to Craig Harris for all of his great Pioneer Athletics coverage this year.
