A&M-Commerce student Maigyne Ishman and others recently received the Extra Mile Award from Greenville ISD for their role in assisting a GISD student involved in a motor vehicle accident in Greenville.
Ishman, a student in the Organizational Leadership program at A&M-Commerce, is a Marine and a business teacher at Greenville High School. Upon witnessing a nearby pedestrian versus vehicle accident, she moved quickly to render aid. She then recognized the pedestrian as one of her students. Utilizing her military training, Ishman assessed and immobilized and kept the student calm while waiting for first responders to arrive at the scene.
