“The grant money will be used to order CPR manikins.  The manikins will provide students hands-on experience to practice the steps and techniques for administering CPR.  This will help students understand what it feels like to give compressions and breaths in real life. This practice will increase students’ chances of remembering how to administer CPR correctly and effectively in emergency situations.  I’m grateful for Nebo Foundations for providing this grant and helping my students to save lives!” exclaimed Jodi Partridge, health teacher at Mapleton Junior.

Nebo Education Foundation Gives Grants February 2015 - Sherrie Dunford

Sherrie Dunford, guitar teacher at Mapleton Junior, said, “To have music stands that belong to the new guitar program at Mapleton Jr. High is such a great advantage for us.  This program in its fledgling year last year drew four rather smallish classes of students who wished to learn the guitar.  This year the classes are more than twice as large and are progressing nicely.  Having our own stands means not having to drag stands from other music rooms or having two classes need them at the same time. It will save us time by being able to have stands set up in our classroom each day and being able to quickly put them away at the end of the day.  Not only that, but the new stands will be light weight and much easier to handle.  It also gives the guitar students a feeling of ownership in the music programs.  Thank you Nebo Foundation for seeing our need and helping us meet it.  We are so excited to get the new stands.”
