  • Feb 13, 2015. Thirteen Future Health Care Club members received CPR training from Amber Clark, who is with Cox College. Amber brought Carol Bland and Angela McCowan to help with the training. They were kind enough to bring their materials to Branson High School so that the students would not have to travel. The students would like to thank Cox for the opportunity for this training.
