A staff member who went above and beyond to save the life of a student at East Broadway Elementary School was honored at the Levittown Board of Education meeting on Nov. 29.

Janice Reyes-Luzzi, a staff member at East Broadway, took immediate action when she saw a student show signs of choking. She quickly administered the Heimlich maneuver, which aided the student. At the board meeting, principal Jordan Margolis commended Mrs. Reyes-Luzzi.

“When we send our children to school each morning, we have faith that they will not only be engaged in learning but will be safe and cared for by the adults they come in contact with,” Mr. Margolis said. “As a building leader, having people on my team like Janice, who put children first, makes me proud to be a part of the East Broadway community. While we are highlighting this one brave and selfless act, Janice exemplifies these values on a daily basis.”
