Cherokee Staff Members Honored as Heroes

Heroes  

Paraprofessional and former School Resource Officer Gary Denelsbeck, Athletic Trainer Karen Hengst, Nurse-Paraprofessional Felicia Progar, and Athletic Trainer Jeff Wood were honored as heroes by the Board of Education and District Administration for their efforts to aid a colleague who lost consciousness just prior to a Cherokee faculty in-service at the Lenape Performing Arts Center.

Denelsbeck and Progar performed CPR as Wood and Hengst arrived with AEDs (automated external defibrillators). While Denelsbeck and Progar continued CPR, Wood and Hengst assembled the AED and attached it to the staff member. As instructed by the AED, Hengst administered the shock and our staff member regained consciousness, became lucid and was talking within minutes.

The staff member who needed assistance thanked her colleagues and the Cherokee Family for saving her life.  Superintendent of Schools Carol Birnbohm, Ed.D. added,  “You are brave. You are heroes. I find myself still filled with emotion and gratitude when I recall what the four of you, as well as several others from the Cherokee Family, accomplished on February 17, 2017."
