Day two of the youth leadership camp was a success. The theme of the day was “The Heart of a Leader”. We started the day by teaching the students how the human heart works, heart anatomy, how to find, take and compute their average resting pulse rates. The students then learned how to take blood pressure and discussed the importance of monitoring and maintaining healthy blood pressure values. In the afternoon Janet Olmstead, representing Gundersen Global Partners, trained twenty-one youth leadership students and Pine Ridge community members to perform adult, child and infant CPR. They were also trained to use an AED. The HSA students helped facilitate and demonstrate CPR, AED and Heimlich techniques on the manikins and worked side by side with the Pine Ridge students and community members. As a teacher it was very rewarding to watch the HSA students take on the role of facilitators and teachers. It was also neat to watch the level of trust develop and grow between the students from Pine Ridge and the Academy student from La Crosse. We ended our day on an exciting and beautiful four-hour drive (with multiple photo-op stops) through the White River valley and the Badlands National Park. A wonderful sunset, many buffalo, horses, mule deer and spectacular views of the badlands made this a rewarding end to a busy day.
