HOUSTON -

Two local middle school staff members were honored for saving a student's life.

The 7th grade girl went into cardiac arrest on a staircase on Feb. 28. Spillane Middle School's nurse Becky Cushen and club swim coach Sean Stiewart resuscitated the girl's heart using an automated external defibrillator last month.

Cy-Fair ISD's superintendent presented the Superintendent Challenge Coin to Cushen and Stiewart at a recent board meeting.
