Padua Lunch lady Mrs. Megan Kulikowski performed the Heimlich maneuver and saved a student from choking during lunch on Thursday, September 1, 2022.
Thankfully the student is ok. Her mother shared this message of gratitude:
“We are forever grateful to Mrs. Kulikowski for her quick thinking and quick reaction. She saved my daughter’s life. We are truly blessed to have her and the rest of the cafeteria staff looking out for our kids. I don’t even know what else to say other than thank you and you are a hero.”
“Padua is blessed to have a wonderful cafeteria staff who love our students,” Principal Bob DiRocco said. “Four of our cafeteria staff either have children here now, or have children or grandchildren who have graduated. They treat each student with the same love and care they show their own children.”
