Marlboro County School District serves over 4,100 students in rural South Carolina. In 2018 the district implemented the Vector Training System (formerly SafeSchools) for their staff safety and compliance training for over 500 staff. Each year, staff members across the district are assigned various online training courses to complete through Vector Training to meet mandated training requirements and help prepare school staff for potential safety and emergency situations.
This year, 7th grade science teacher Mrs. Rashmi Singh was required to take a CPR course through Vector Training. Shortly after taking the course, Mrs. Singh was faced with a true emergency in her own life when her young son stopped breathing after falling into a pool. By learning about CPR through the Vector Training course, Mrs. Singh was able to save her own child’s life. When it mattered most, she was able to perform CPR, something she had never tried before. In September, Mrs. Singh received an Award of Commendation from Marlboro County Superintendent Dr. Gregory McCord.
Watch the video to hear Mrs. Sing’s heartfelt story of how the training she received was a true lifesaver. Well done, Mrs. Singh and thank you for sharing your story!
