Allison Kiefer of Easton had to save a jogger after a car hit him Thursday afternoon. He was unresponsive, so she checked his vital signs and moved him onto a stretcher.
But the scene was not real. Kiefer, a senior at Joel Barlow High School, was taking a practical exam for her Honors Introduction to Medical Care class Thursday during Barlow Palooza . The Redding, West Redding and Georgetown fire departments staged a multiple car accident with many injuries for students to evaluate. Pam Goodpaster teaches the class, and many of her graduates came back for Barlow Palooza to act as injured drivers, joggers and passengers.
In the beginning of the school year Kiefer didn't know what she wanted to do when she left for college the following fall.
"The class is a lot different from other classes. It's a lot more work but it's worth it," said Kiefer, who will be studying nursing at the University of Tulsa in the fall.
Barlow Palooza showcased student work from the past year, including a pottery wheel demonstration, an art exhibit through the hallways, senior speak-out presentations, science presentations, a live band and more.
