Good Samaritan Spotlight

On a cold and icy November 15th when school was closed due to the bad weather, Oak Harbor High School student T.J. Branch was out on his golf cart in his Sand Beach neighborhood. T.J. spotted a man hunched over apparently in distress. T.J. assessed the situation and called for his mom and the two of them began CPR on the man. The man in distress was then taken by ambulance to the hospital. Oak Harbor High School is proud of the courage and compassion shown by T.J. Branch. His selfless action is something that our entire community should be proud of! Well done T.J!
