CEDAR LAKE | A Hanover employee was honored as a heroine during the June School Board of Trustees meeting.
Cari Vincent, a Recess Aide at Jane Ball Elementary School, was given a certificate of appreciation and flowers during the meeting. Vincent is credited with saving a fourth-grader's life during a lunch period May 28. Vincent administered the Heimlich maneuver while the student was choking.
“Mrs. Vincent’s quick thinking and rapid response prevented a tragedy from occurring,” Principal Teri Crussen said. “We thank you for your dedication to the students at Jane Ball.”
