A local high schooler is taking his passion for emergency services and sharing it with the world.
Two years ago, Jessie Conners, a 15-year old freshman at Harpeth High, created a social media page that highlights the many faces, vehicles, and roles that encompass the world of emergency services.
On the page, https://www.facebook.com/TNEMERGENCYSERVICES/, Conners showcases stunning photography, live action, and more.
When he was just 11, Conners began realizing how these public servants impacted the world around him.
“I became very interested in law enforcement when I was 11-years old. I immediately became interested once I saw how they saved people and were willing to put it all on the line,” he says. “Seeing police officers come to my school and talk to us, made me realize I wanted to be in law enforcement more than anything. From the uniforms to the badge, to equipment and cars— I love it all,”
Setting clear and precise goals for himself, Conners plans to attend the police academy after he graduates high school in a few years. He aims to get a job within the sheriff’s office and hopes to remain there until he retires.
“These people put their lives on the line every day to save many,” he adds. “Until I can join them, this is my way to honor them.”
