Bruce Badoni, a student at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI, will graduate in August 2018. Badoni spent the last 8 years working in the healthcare field as a Nurse’s Aide and as an Emergency Medical Technician-Paramedic. He is currently employed at Smith-Miner Funeral Home in Midland, MI. He shared that his ultimate goal is to own his own funeral home.

“After seeing the care the funeral director showed my grandfather who died while in hospice care in our home, it felt like a sign,” said Bruce. “The funeral profession overlaps so many subjects such as anatomy, physiology, law, finance, customer service and so on. I absolutely love it and could not imagine doing anything else.”
