Strongsville’s Clayton Angeloff named Tri-C Student Veteran of the Year
November 22, 2016
Clayton Angeloff’s route to Cuyahoga Community College’s Emergency Medical Technology program took him through Texas, South Carolina and the Middle Eastern country of Jordan.
It’s because, upon graduating from Strongsville High School in 2010, Angeloff enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, seeking to become a firefighter. His various assignments took him to bases in Texas for basic training and fire academy training, and to Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina, from where he was deployed to Jordan for seven months.
Following his enlistment, Angeloff returned home in 2015 and enrolled in Tri-C’s EMT program, with a projected graduation in spring 2017, and eyes on becoming a firefighter/paramedic with a fire department in the Northeast Ohio area.
But no matter where he goes after graduation, Angeloff has already made a difference at Tri-C.
Angeloff was recently honored as Tri-C’s 2016 Student Veteran of the Year for his actions in assisting a fellow Tri-C student who suffered a severe seizure in August, taking immediate steps to stabilize the student until paramedics arrived.
