FARMINGTON — Two Davis School District educators credited the district with teaching them the skills that helped them save a life.
Patty Arbon, a new administrative intern and a former functional skills teacher at South Clearfield Elementary, and Valerie Lasater, the computer lab manager at Antelope Elementary were honored recently by the Davis School Board for putting their training into effect in an emergency situation.
According to a press release, the two were working at Bath and Body Works on June 14 when a customer suffered a stroke.
Lasater checked her pulse and finding none, called 911 while Arbon administered CPR, according to the release. The woman began breathing again and was taken the hospital for treatment.
“Davis District is proud to have two such caring individuals work with our children,” said Helene Van Natter, elementary director, as quoted in the release. “And we appreciate their willingness to step in to an emergency situation and help someone in our community.”
