One of this week's notes, from Huron High School:

The American Heart Association certified all Huron High School sophomores in CPR this past week through their health class studies.

Students studied CPR, AED usage and the Heimlich maneuver, as well as the symptoms of stroke, heart attack and choking. Teacher Tom Bollenbacher, nurse Janice Wallace and American Heart Association training center coordinator Marisa Munafo presented the week-long unit.

The two-year CPR certification students received will help them obtain jobs at local water parks and other businesses requiring it, Bollenbacher said.

The Huron Fire Department covers certification costs and has assisted with the program in the past. 

The same program is available to teachers, coaches and staff a few times throughout the school year, Munafo said.
