CLEARFIELD – The Clearfield County Career & Technology Center (CCCTC) has announced it’s the recipients of a $1,000 scholarship from the “Communities In School of Pennsylvania Office” and a $10,000 scholarship from Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield and the American Heart Association.
The Communities In Schools of Pennsylvania has the opportunity to lead the largest drug-free teen messaging campaign of its kind in the commonwealth ? My Voice PA. This campaign is all about collaboration through positive messaging. The CCCTC will use the $1,000 grant to reach students with the positive message to be drug and alcohol free.
The Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield and the American Heart Association are committed to helping students become trained in CPR. The CCCTC has also been selected to receive a scholarship for the Family and Friends CPR training.
The school has received 320 free CPR kits for students to take CPR training. This scholarship is valued at $10,000. Every student that attends CCCTC will be given the CPR training and the CPR kits to take home.
CCCTC officials hope that the students trained will reach out to other family members and friends to teach them CPR to accomplish the mission of saving lives.
