Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick honored Grand Island Middle School’s Assistant Principal Eleanor Payne during a presentation held at the school on Sept. 25 to applaud Payne for responding to an emergency at the school in September. Payne is credited with saving the life of a child who had collapsed inside the school.

 

“Assistant Principal Payne rushed to the girl and quickly determined she didn’t have a pulse. It was a very serious situation but thanks to Eleanor’s quick reaction and for immediately administering CPR, the girl began breathing again,” said Legislator Hardwick. “Thank you to Assistant Principal Payne for keeping calm, applying her CPR training and giving this girl a fighting chance. You are a hero.”

 

Legislator Hardwick presented Assistant Principal Payne with a certificate of merit on behalf of the Erie County Legislature, commending her life-saving efforts.

 

He also thanked the Grand Island Volunteer Fire Department who responded to the school and treated the girl.
