Campus Champion

Senior Mia Dimartino found her place with the SUNY Cortland Emergency Medical Services (SCEMS) as a freshman. Having no EMS experience at the time, the biology major volunteered, participated in trainings and now serves as chief of the student organization. She often works three 12-hour shifts a week — all good training for a future in medicine. SCEMS is the first responder service for campus emergencies. On Wednesday, Mia will preside over the university’s 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony, set for 7 p.m. on the Corey Union steps, as the Cortland community pays its respects to our country’s brave first responders, many of whom sacrificed everything to save lives.
