Brandon submitted an application for the Outstanding Contribution to EMS by a High School Senior award.  The competition was tight and the CSEMS Board of Directors was torn between the two top candidates.  Because of his dedication and hard work, the Board decided to award Brandon the Kevin Sperka Memorial Award which was established during the May 1983 Executive Committee meeting of the CSEMS Council by a proposal of the Glasgow Life Saving and First Aid Crew.

This award is offered annually to an outstanding young member, less than 25 years old, of one of the Council’s member crews. The award is in memory of Kevin Sperka, member of the Glasgow Life Saving and First Aid Crew, who died of cancer at the age of 21. It was established as a memorial to Kevin for the work he did with the Glasgow crew and his community, and to encourage other young rescue squad personnel to learn, work, and provide quality services to their communities.

In doing so, the Board decided to modify the Kevin Sperka Memorial Award and to include a $500 cash award for use by the winner to further education in the field of EMS.

Brandon is a volunteer at Broadway Emergency Squad.

Congratulations Brandon on winning the Kevin Sperka Memorial Award and $500 cash award!
