Some of the area's brightest young students spent their Wednesday afternoon learning some life-saving lessons.
Junior volunteers with Christus Spohn Health Systems were learning trauma skills that are essential for anyone working in the medical field.
The volunteers have actually spent the last two months volunteering at the six different Christus Spohn health facilities in the area. The hope is that Wednesday's lesson will inspire them to pursue a career in the medical field.
"I'm interested in a career in medicine," junior volunteer Christian Villareal said. "I wanted to see how the inner-workings of the hospital are, and just the atmosphere."
"Well, my dad works here at Memorial as an emergency room doctor, and I've always loved hearing all of his amazing stories," volunteer Simone Garcia said. "So I've wanted to be in the atmosphere with medical people, and it's something I'm interested in when I get older."
About 50 students are taking part in this summer's Junior Volunteer Program.
