Lebanon athletes will now have access to a potentially lifesaving medical device  thanks to a donation from a local family.
According to a press release from the Lebanon R-3 School District, the Norman K. Mustard family has donated $1,679.82 to the school system for the purchase of an automatic external defibrillator (AED). The device has been installed in the field house of the old Lebanon Junior High School, which still houses Lebanon Wrestling and other athletic events.
The release says that Mustard saw a news story about an area high school athlete being saved through the use of an AED and suggested that his family donate funds to purchase one for Lebanon schools. The family contacted the district and learned that the field house was the only school that did not already have an AED in place.
The AED is dedicated to the memory of family member Billy Christopher Mustard.
