Agenda Item #8


Title
B-2. Recognition of Kim Stockton

Discussion

The School Board would like to recognize Kim Stockton, Assistant Principal, Cocoa High School for her quick thinking and knowledge of life saving techniques.  At the school, during a recent interview with a prospective student, his mother and infant sibling, the baby choked on a piece of candy and stopped breathing. Ms. Stockton took the baby from his mother and using known life saving measures dislodged the candy from the child's throat.  When the paramedics arrived they commended Ms. Stockton for having acted swiftly and appropriately.  The action taken by Kim Stockton saved the life of the child.



Recommendation

Recognize Kim Stockton for her quick thinking and knowledge of life saving techniques, turning a potentially tragic event into a successful rescue.
