Im a Junior at Spring Valley High School in Huntington, WV. I love staying active so usually if Im not at the station Im at either the gym or the tennis courts. I love all kinds of music but my favorite would definetly be alternative rock with my favorite band being UnderOath. I love the outdoors whether its hunting or fishing and its a big reason why I love WV so much, regardless of all the jokes and prejudices. In the future I plan on attending Marshall University and double majoring in Paramedic Sciences and Nursing, I also definetly plan on staying in the fire service and one day becoming an officer at my department. Thats about it for now but if ya wanna know anything more my myspace is listed on this page and my AIM screen name is CKHODGIE. Stay safe out there and hope to hear from you soon!
My grandfather is a founding member of my town's volunteer fire dept. and Ive always sorta grown up around the fire service so when I turned 16 I didnt think twice about joining. Now that I've been in the service although my time in it has been short I've realized how amazing it is.
