Recipient's comments: "In a way I was expecting it from the looks I kept getting from the other explorers, but I was surprised and I was very happy. They pick the Explorer of the Year by attendance, training and the most enthusiasm. I had 367 volunteer hours in and I want to work with the MedEvac Aviation Team as a paramedic after I go through the Maryland State Police Academy."
