In 2018 the lives of a number of students, staff, and families were changed forever. A lone gunman entered the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and opened fire. The shooter killed 17 students and staff before he was subdued and arrested. As Micah Quinn reports, first responders who were there during the tragedy made a presentation at the University of Lethbridge to talk about the impact of the shooting and what can be done to speed up response times during a crisis like the one which occurred in Florida.
After graduating from Mount Royal University in Calgary with a Broadcasting Diploma, Micah made the trek down to Lethbridge to work for Bridge City News. He has previously worked at City TV Calgary on the Breakfast Television morning show. He looks forward to connecting with this community, and reaching a new audience. Micah has a passion for interviewing and finding out why people think the way they do. You’ll often find him pursuing local feature stories and hard news.
