Living our Mission with Laker Pride

Mdewakanton Sioux donates 15 AEDs to PLSAS

During the Laker Pride portion of the September 11 School Board meeting, members of the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux were recognized for their generous gift of 15 AEDs (automated external defibrillators) to be put into our schools.

PLSAS Health Coordinator, Kate Keil, explained the need that our district had to replace parts of the AED's that were previously in our district and had reached out to the Mdewakanton Sioux community for assistance. After understanding that need, the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux graciously donated 15 brand new lifesaving AED devices to replace the old ones.

We are so grateful for the partnership that we have with the Mdewakanton Sioux community. Their support in providing these essential devices helps to ensure the safety and well-being for our students, staff and visitors.
