BRIDGEPORT - The employees of Career Resources in Bridgeport say they plan to dedicate their computer lab in honor of fallen firefighter and former employee Michel Baik.

Baik's former boss, Scott Wilderman, told News 12 Connecticut that a little more than two years ago, Baik decided to leave his job as a teacher at Career Resources to follow his dream and become a firefighter.

Those who worked with Baik at Career Resources said they will never forget his smile.

Career Resources says it will hold a ceremony dedicating the lab in Baik's honor in September.
