Lexie Holloway’s application for the Outstanding Contribution to EMS by a High School Senior award was selected as the winner.  In addition to this award, Lexie will received a $1,000 EMS scholarship. She has been affiliated with Grottoes Volunteer Fire Department since 2011.  Her cumulative GPA was a 4.022.  Lexie’s application included letters from her high school and EMS agency, both of which highly recommended her for this scholarship.

Lexie’s scholarship application indicates that she will be attending Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University this fall.

In her application, Lexie stated: “EMS has been in my family for generations. It is what I grew up around and what comes naturally to me. Majority of my family are involved in some form of EMS or another. My mom is a 911 dispatcher, my step dad is a paid firefighter and my step mom is a volunteer at our local fire department, Grottoes Volunteer Fire Department (GVFD); where I am also a member.”

“Though I have family in many different parts of EMS the person that inspired me the most was my dad. My dad began his EMS career in high school and after experiencing many parts of EMS he is currently the Chief of Rockingham County Fire and Rescue. Seeing my dad’s wonderful relationship with people in our community due to his involvement in EMS gave me the initiative to try it myself. The leadership skills, teamwork skills and community involvement that my dad has because of the field of EMS is what inspired me to get involved.” she continued.

Congratulations Lexie on winning the Outstanding Contribution to EMS by a High School Senior regional award and $1,000 scholarship!
