Each year, human anatomy students at KHS have the chance to receive training and certification for CPR, first aid, Epi-pen and AED on adults, children, and infants.

This year the training took place Wednesday, Dec. 5.

Mrs. Kandy Cousins, human anatomy teacher, held the training in partnership with the school nurse, Ms. Nichole Cameron, who has a bachelor’s degree in science of nursing.

Cousins feels the training is important not only to the students taking her human anatomy class but to the general population.

Oftentimes, …they need to have some idea on what to do until an ambulance arrives.”

“The training teaches you what to do in case of a medical emergency,” Cousins said. “Oftentimes, the medical emergency is occurring at home or in a workplace, and the first responder is just a regular person, not a medical professional, so they need to have some idea on what to do until an ambulance arrives.”

Cousins has been holding the training for nearly 15 years, while Ms. Cameron has been instructing CPR in the district for nearly three years.

Senior Leah Williams enjoyed the experience and found it helpful with real life situations.

“What if something happens in real life and no one around knows what to do?” Williams said. “I can always try my best to help others.”
