2021 director of the year

Micheal Willits
director of ems, sevier county

Mike Willits  lead us through a very difficult year with the COVID-19 pandemic.  On top of that, the process of beginning to bring us together to help us begin working with the state representatives and legislators to secure additional funding for Rural EMS in our great state. He was proactive in getting many Representatives and legislators together to start the process for obtaining funding for rural EMS.  Many trips to capital hill, time and effort in keeping us all moving in the right direction working on securing extra dollars for each of our agencies.  Plus, working on the funding to bring back the Liaisons from the Bureau of EMS to each of our agencies, which has been a huge help to all of us.  Mike is an example of leadership to us all  and has brought us together helping us to feel like a Rural EMS family. Elanor Roosevelt once said: To Handle yourself use your head, to handle others, use your heart. Which is what Mike has done. Mike has had the support of his good wife Marcy and their family.  We thank Mike for his service to Rural EMS in our state.
