DCSD & Sky Ridge Medical Center announce community partnership

DOUGLAS COUNTY – Earlier this month, Sky Ridge Medical Center named Douglas County School District (DCSD) as their community partner of the year.
 
“We’re very pleased to partner with Sky Ridge Medical Center,” said DCSD Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Fagen.  “Sky Ridge is a pillar of the Douglas County community and we are fortunate to be able to take advantage of their expertise for our students.  We welcome their contribution and their volunteers.”
 
As part of the partnership, DCSD will engage Sky Ridge employees in volunteer opportunities from working at the Douglas County Outdoor Education Center to collecting school supplies.  Sky Ridge will also offer medical expertise for classrooms, insight into careers in health care for students, and provide important health information to DCSD stakeholders.
 
“We are proud of the relationship we have fostered with DCSD over the past several years and naming the District as our Community Partner of the Year was a great next step,” said Maureen Tarrant, CEO of Sky Ridge Medical Center.  “In fact, a number of students who have participated in our junior volunteer program have been awarded higher education scholarships and others have been accepted to medical school.  It is gratifying to know that we can play a small, yet meaningful, part in helping shape our future leaders.”
 
“We know that strong schools make strong communities.  The reverse is also true and we appreciate everything Sky Ridge does for our community and our schools,” continued Fagen.

When it comes to mental health services, communities traditionally focus on supporting kids as needs arise. This work is crucial for the safety of our students. Equally important, though, is prevention-based programming that can help, early on, prevent the social-emotional challenges our kids may be experiencing from escalating.
