Allegany College of Maryland student Misty Hoover pumped air into a pig’s lung Wednesday night, trying to attract interest in the school’s respiratory program. Hoover has a job waiting for her after she graduates in May from ACM’s respiratory therapy school.

She completed the Career Center’s health occupations program in 2000.

“It was a wonderful program,” said Hoover, of LaVale. “It at least opened my eyes as a young person to health care. And once I found respiratory, it was where I wanted to be.”
