Michael Latta loved being an EMT. After graduating from North Andover High School in 2004, he found his passion when he enrolled at Northern Essex Community College and completed his EMT certificate. “Michael would sign up for 24 hour shifts on Saturday nights because there were more emergency calls” recalls his sister Nikki. “We all need people like Michael in our communities.”
