MIDDLEBURY COLLEGE FRESHMAN Trent Sorenson, left, is tested on his CPR skills by Middlebury Emergency Medical Technician Paul Miller last Thursday afternoon. Sorenson and several other Middlebury College J-Term students were in the final stages last week of a class that prepared them for EMT certification. The course has been offered for many years thanks to a close partnership between the college and Middlebury Regional EMS.
