David’s scholarship fund reaches across the entire state of Arkansas to help EMT and Paramedic student’s to further their education in the EMS field.  David was very passionate about EMS. His vision was to see that the state of Arkansas become one of the top Trauma Centers in the nation. David went to be with his heavenly father before he could see his vision become reality, but with the help of his EMS family and people throughout Arkansas, his vision can continue helping the EMS students of Arkansas.
