St. Patrick School students receive "hands-on" education ...

Students at St. Patrick School in Waukon received some "hands-on" education in regard to health and hygiene recently. Andrea Leppert and Jared Donahue (left to right in back of the above photo), who are second-year nursing students at Northeast Iowa Community College this year, first taught students about thorough hand washing techniques and then used a special black light box, pictured at left  in the photo above, to show St. Patrick School fourth grade students Jeremiah Howe, Claire Schulte and Brandon Leppert (left to right in photo foreground) just how many germs really do live on unwashed or improperly washed hands. Students were amazed to see that even after they thought their hands were properly washed or sanitized, there remained much evidence to the contrary. Submitted photo.
