Commodities employee Adam Knepp was recognized for his heroism by Executive Director Mark Farley during the UCHRA Executive Board meeting held on April 20. In March, Adam successfully performed the Heimlich maneuver on a volunteer who was choking during a commodities distribution event. The volunteer began using the universal signal that he was choking and Adam jumped into action.
“I am very happy that Adam knew the lifesaving technique of the Heimlich,” said LaNelle Godsey, Community Services Director. “Without his quick thinking, we could have had a different outcome.”
