Christopher McKellar

Christopher’s goal is to join the San Mateo Fire Department, the perfect career for someone who is most proud of his willingness to help others and whose references praise his commitment and dedication.

Although he admits to struggles in school due to a learning disability, Christopher’s references note that this has not diminished his eagerness to learn or his can-do attitude. Tellingly of his character, Christopher’s challenges in gaining and retaining knowledge have made him love teaching and sharing with others all the more.

Currently a senior at San Mateo High School, Christopher is taking courses in Fire and Rescue and towards an EMT certification at the College of San Mateo.
