When she graduated from our Academy on November 8, 2019, FDNY Probationary Paramedic Arallia Scullark marked a spot in history as the first FDNY Captain Vernon A. Richard High School for Fire and Life Safety alumna to become a Paramedic in our Department.
“I love medicine and the effect it has on our patients. You are constantly learning on this job and I think that is the best part. This job is a big part of my life. The great instructors at the academy and my family are the reason I was able to get through this training. I do all of this for my family. I love working here and the FDNY High School had a lot to do with that. It’s a good feeling to know that I am the first female high school alum to become a Paramedic in this Department. I hope to have inspired others as well,” she said with a smile on her face.
Scullark, a Class of 2011 alum, graduated yesterday alongside 57 of her fellow Probationary ‘Medics.’ View more photos from the ceremony here.
