As a lieutenant in the Tuscumbia Fire department, part of Isaac Wingo's job is to train new firefighters and manage the men on his shift.
Soon, Wingo will be training high school students who just might become professional firefighters themselves.
He was recently selected to become the instructor at the Colbert County Career Tech's Fire Science Program at Cherokee High School.
Wingo will follow in the footsteps of Michael D. Smith, who was the program's first and only instructor. Smith recently became the director of the Colbert County Emergency Management Agency following the retirement in May of longtime director Mike Melton.
