Fire Rescue High School Cadets Heading to SkillsUSA Competition

By CCVFireEMS Coordinator/Public Information Officer William Smith

This Saturday, February 8th, three Fire Rescue High School Cadets from Class #24, Cadet Corporal Mitch Painter, Cadet Corporal Brenden Donias and Cadet Corporal Dylan Walker are heading to Calvert County to compete in SkillsUSA Competition against Calvert and St. Mary’s County’s Cadet Programs.

With the assistance and training from the Potomac Heights Volunteers and the cadet’s parents our cadets have been practicing for this event for over a month and are up to the challenge. As Chief Justin Lucas has said, these “young bucks are exceptional and eager to compete”.

All are invited to come to the event to show support for the cadets and our program.

Location: St. Leonard Volunteer Fire Department located at 200 Calvert Beach Rd, St Leonard, MD 20685

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
