EVART — Evart Public Schools is stepping up its safety protocols after a high school student went into cardiac arrest during a varsity basketball practice several weeks ago.
"Jan. 22, 2021, was a day like any other, until it wasn't. Danny (Witbeck)'s life was saved and a dozen other lives were forever changed," board president Alan Bengry said during Monday's meeting. "The board expresses its deep appreciation and admiration to all those who contributed that day, whether by your actions, your prayers or your presence. The board thanks you."
