Ignatius Barajas and Ms. Bricker
Ms. Bricker is a social studies teacher at North Middle School. Earlier this school year, one of the students in Ms. Bricker’s class started having a seizure. While it is natural to freeze up during a medical crisis like this, one student jumped into action to help Ms. Bricker by alerting the front office, moving furniture and objects out of the way, and keeping the area clear so Ms. Bricker could assist the student seizing. That student was 7th grader Ignatius Barajas. Yesterday, the Interim Superintendent, Dr. Nicholas Gledich, and Board of Education Director, Julie Ott, presented Ignatius with a certificate of appreciation for his heroic actions and quick thinking.
