South Canyon teacher receives lifesaving award

Crouch 1

Jonathon Gibbons is alive and well thanks to the life-saving measures taken by South Canyon Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Crouch.


At snack time, Jonathon Gibbons began to choke on an orange. When Mrs. Crouch noticed he was struggling she performed the Heimlich Maneuver, which cleared his airway and ultimately saved his life.


We are so very lucky to have teachers like Mrs. Crouch teaching and caring for our students. She was presented with the school’s Lifesaving Award and will be recognized at a future City Council meeting.


Needless to say, Jonathon’s parents, Jeremy and Julie Gibbons, are grateful!
