100% of the funds donated to this scholarship fund will provide opportunities for individuals who want to attend Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) or Paramedic School, but cannot afford the tuition.

Applicants for the scholarship must meet specific criteria and will be chosen annually by the family of EMT, Chad Leggett. (In partnership with Faithful Guardian Training Center, Puckett EMS, and the family and friends of EMT, Chad Leggett.)

Chad Austin Leggett, age 24, of Douglasville, passed away on Thursday, June 2, 2011.  Funeral services were held on Monday, June 6, 2011.

Chad was born on May 15, 1987 in Marietta, GA and was a 2005 graduate of Hiram High School.  After high school, he attended Southern Polytechnic State University and graduated from Faithful Guardian EMT School in 2010.  He was an EMT for Puckett EMS and a member of Sweetwater Baptist Church.

Chad enjoyed hunting, bass fishing, anything outdoors and riding 4 wheelers.  In his own words: “I am your typical country boy, just a little more shy and quiet than the rest.  Give me some woods with a swamp or creek and I’ll be a happy camper.  Life pretty much consists of work, hunting and hanging out with friends.  I’m currently an EMT at Puckett EMS and love my job, although I would like to get on with the fire department one day.”

Surviving are his parents, Roger Allen and Debbie Waters Leggett; a sister and brother-in-law, Amanda Leggett Withrow and husband Jonathan of Douglasville; grandparents, Bertha Waters Nutting and her husband Don of Douglasville; a niece, Felicity Withrow; and, a nephew, Brennan Withrow.
