LAKE WORTH, Fla. — Artist Cassandra Rose is about to graduate from the paramedic program at Palm Beach State College, and you could say that she made her mark — on a wall, that is.
She recently finished painting the corridor walls of the EMS section of the PSC building, which is part of the Public Safety Training Center on the Lake Worth campus, according to a news release from Palm Beach State.
“As long as I can remember, I’ve been doodling, painting and drawing,” she said. “It tends to be my form of stress relief and helps me relax, and I love being able to portray my own perspective on the world through my art.”
Rose has an art business but donated her services for this project.
She graduated from PBSC’s EMT program and attended Broward Fire Academy before enrolling in PBSC’s paramedic program. Having passed her state certification exams, she is interviewing for firefighter/paramedic jobs.
