Mass. Girl Scout Leads Effort To Train Local Teachers In CPR, Acquire AEDs For Schools

Posted by Thomas Oliver on 7/29/2014 to AED News

The Gold Award, the highest honor a Girl Scout can be awarded, cannot be completed until the candidate completes a project that betters their community.

Girl Scout Amanda Wendland has certainly found an effective way to do just that.

Wendland, who hails from Mansfield, Mass., will earn her honors by distributing AEDs to schools in her community and getting local teachers CPR certified, and effort that we at AEDs Today can certainly get behind.

Her inspiration came from her own CPR training, where she learned just how much it can increase SCA victims’ survival rates. When she learned that only one third of local teachers were CPR certified, she decided to take action.

In addition to her goal to have two-thirds of teachers trained, she also hopes to purchase two AEDs.  

Her fundraising efforts will include bake sales, car washes, candy sales, and good old-fashioned word of mouth. She hopes that members of her community will help her reach her goal.

Wendland is already a decorated Girl Scout, having already earned multiple academic awards and working to the Ambassador level in her twelve years in the organization.

Keep up the good work, Amanda!
