McCarty good neighbor photoScandia Mayor Christine Maefsky presented a Good Neighbor Award Proclamation to Michelle McCarty at the October 18, 2022 City Council meeting.  

Michelle was nominated by Deputy Zach Boesel, who wrote of the Michelle’s life saving measures to a fellow Scandia citizen who suffered a medical emergency and crashed his car into a tree in Michelle’s yard. Michelle stayed calm and collected as Deputy Zach Boesel arrived on the scene, and assisted Boesel as they provided CPR, automatic defibrillation and oxygen. The individual was transported by ambulance for medical care, survived the accident and is in good health today. Michelle played a critical role in this rare, successful outcome.

Please join us in offering congratulations to Michelle for her courage, character and many qualities of being a Scandia Good Neighbor!
