Heart Safe School Nomination Form
The national Heart Safe School Accreditation program is accepting nominations for the Rob L. Walker Heart Safe School Champion Award. This annual award is presented by Snider Community Heart Watch at Fairfield Medical Center and the Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes (SADS) Foundation to recognize individuals who are dedicated to making schools safer and better prepared for those who have heart conditions.
The award is named after Rob L. Walker, former superintendent of Lancaster City Schools and Pickerington Local Schools. It was Walker who led the accreditation process in both districts, with Pickerington becoming the first school district in the nation to have all its schools accredited.
The Snider Cardiovascular Institute at Fairfield Medical Center and the Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes Foundation look forward to presenting this award during SADS Awareness Month in October.
