Eighth grade students at Roosevelt Intermediate School learned CPR from Westfield High School senior, Caitlyn Tierney.

Tierney, a former lifeguard who is certified in CPR/First Aid, returned to Roosevelt to teach current students CPR in all of the 8th grade health classes.

“It was a great experience for all and she did an amazing job," Sharon Dorry, Roosevelt’s Nurse/Health Educator, stated. "The students really enjoyed it and have a new appreciation and knowledge of this valuable skill.”

Students were able to use the skills they learned on a mannequin following the presentation. Tierney's lessons are part of her Girl Scout Gold Award project, which she is hoping will empower teenagers to make a different in the face of an emergency.
