Citizens Life Saving Awards were presented to Emily Turpin, Erika Lazaro, Jenifer Jaurez Garcia, Sansar Kharal, Lauren Smith, Jessica Moss, Shelby Williams and Karen Homstad for their efforts on October 14, 2021.

On that day, an individual was utilizing the gym in the Student Recreation Center and went into cardiac arrest.

The eight award recipients acted immediately. They remained calm, called 911, started CPR and applied an AED, and directed EMS to the patient.

Their actions played a vital role in the patient’s successful outcome.
