The Clark County Skills Center Foundation has received a $2,000 grant from the Quinn Driscoll Foundation to purchase an automated external defibrillator for its new Criminal Justice Training Facility.
The Driscoll Foundation is named for 13-year-old Quinn Driscoll, who died from sudden cardiac arrest while running during gym class in 2009. The foundation educates and screens for SCA and distributes AEDs throughout the community. Driscoll's death was caused by hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, an abnormal heart muscle, which is the leading cause of death for young athletes in the U.S.
Owned and operated by the 10 Clark County school districts, the Skills Center provides technical and professional training programs to prepare Clark County high school and college students for the workforce. To learn more, visit www.ccskillscenter.com.
