SNAPPED: University of Utah AirMed team visits PCHS for ‘Careers over Coffee’

PARK CITY, Utah — On Friday May 3, the students at Park City High School received a special visit on Dozier Field from a University of Utah AirMed helicopter as a part of ‘Careers over Coffee,’ a program that showcases career opportunities and a panel discussion for interested students in specific fields.

Each month, Careers over Coffee focuses is on a different career; for May, the highlight is aviation. PCHS aviation instructor Trip Marshall said their goal is to get people from each industry into the school building.

“Anything we can do to keep students interested, coming to school, and excited about school – is a big deal, no matter the subject,” Marshall said. “And we have a great deal of community support and an affirmation from the students with their commitment to the program.”

Jeanne Knepper, flight nurse, said that the University of Utah AirMed provides advanced skills and rapid transport for critically ill patients with helicopter rescues from either a facility or out of the scene. The pilots are very experienced and have a civilian or military background. The ultimate goal is always getting everyone home safe at the end of the day.
