Students who participate receive a raffle ticket each week. Multiple tickets are drawn at the end of each quarter and participating students have an opportunity to win various prizes.

Research shows that people present the best version of themselves when they are “dressed for success.”  If students feel good on the outside, they are more likely to feel good on the inside. This initiative presents a climate that boosts students’ attitudes and

Euclid High School receives CPR training kit donation

Cleveland Browns cornerback Denzel Ward and his mother, Nicole Ward, paid a visit to Euclid High School this week. 

CPR training kit donation to high schoolThe Make Them Know Your Name Foundation, started by the Wards after Denzel’s father Paul Ward, Jr. died of cardiac arrest, donated a CPR in Schools training kit to the high school. Nicole Ward talked about how her husband suffered cardiac arrest at a gym where no one used the automated external defibrillator (AED) machine, because they were not familiar with how to use it. 

“Time is of the essence when you are faced with cardiac arrest,” she said. “Every moment - no, every second - counts.”

“We just appreciate you guys for taking the initiative,” Denzel Ward said about students learning CPR.

The state passed a bill in 2016 requiring public high schools and charter schools to give students CPR and AED-hands-on instruction. The training kit includes 10 CPR Annie training mannequins and 10 AED training kits. 

Thank you to the Make Them Know Your Name Foundation for your donation and to the American Heart Association for your assistance and participation in the assembly held at the high school.
