pikappNSU- Cade Mitchell, an alumnus of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity at Northwestern State University, was recently named the Central Louisiana EMT of the Year for Acadian Ambulance.
The 2019 initiate of the Beta Omicron Chapter joined Acadian Ambulance in 2021. It is one of the largest ambulance services in the nation, offering emergency and non-emergency transportation to areas in Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi and Tennessee.
Mitchell serves as a field training officer and Explorer post advisor.
“He has always been drawn to mentorship because he enjoys helping others build their ethical foundations,” a news release stated. “While on duty, Cade is a stickler for being ready for his next call.”
Mitchell recently began paramedic school at National EMS Academy. Eventually, he would like to complete his bachelor’s degree in nursing and become a flight nurse with Acadian Air Med.
“I am exceedingly grateful to be named CENLA’s EMT of the Year. This is more than an award, but an encouragement to continue bettering myself for my future endeavors. Undoubtedly, I would not have received this recognition without the support from my friends, family, and fellow medics.”
