On completion of the physical training test, Justin has been promoted to the rank of “Responder.” His next 10 weeks will be Emergency Response Training. The third phase will give him state certified firefighting training. He then plans to continue on to paramedic certification.
Justin is the grandson of Tootsie Hepworth and Ed Arispe of San Antonio and Tom and Kathy Boynton of Floresville.
Justin is a home-school graduate of 2012. He is a former member of Boy Scout Troop No. 115 of Karnes City, and earned Eagle Scout rank in 2012.
