We would like to acknowledge all the hard work our former students are doing to reach their goals.  Take a look at where they are today...

Lennon Rosenau a 2013 Wenatchee High School graduate

Lennon Rosenau
Lennon was a 2013 Wenatchee High School graduate and a fire science student in Wenatchee Valley Tech's firefighting program. A newcomer to the firefighting program, Lennon quickly became an early standout both physically and academically. Lennon competed in the SkillsUSA firefighting competition and achieved the Bronze medal at the State finals. After graduation, Lennon was accepted into Grant County Fire District 3's Resident Firefighting program. There he quickly earned national industry certifications in not just firefighting, but also as a Hazardous Materials Technician, Technical Rescue Technician and Emergency Medical Technician. Just two and a half years out of high school, Lennon is now hired full-time at Hanford Fire Department and is currently completing his one year probationary evaluation.

When asked to give advice to students considering a career in firefighting, Lennon replied, "If you only do as you've always done, you'll only be as good as you've ever been."
