Lanier Tech SkillsUSA Leaders volunteer at
2017 Fallen Heroes of Georgia 5K.
Lanier Tech's SkillsUSA Leaders volunteered to help with the 2017 Fallen Heroes of Georgia 5K event held at Lake Lanier Islands over the weekend.
The SkillsUSA leaders with help from Lanier Tech's Paramedicine Program were staged along the race course to to motivate and encourage the runners to "carry on" in the dreary, cold weather. Lanier Tech SkillsUSA also handed-out water to runners, and the EMS pros from the College's Paramedicine Program provided First Aid services.
After the race finished, Lanier Tech's SkillsUSA Leaders planted commemorative trees honoring fallen loved ones. The
Student Government Association provided the trees to honor the fallen heroes of the Lanier Tech family.
