Boston Celtics Heroes Among Us Honoree

As she came into work one December morning, Boston Public Schools nurse Velma Glover did not expect to save a life.

When Velma was alerted that a colleague was having a seizure, she rushed to his aid. Realizing that he was struggling to breathe, Velma directed staff to call 9-1-1 and secure an AED, as she immediately administered CPR – all without any hesitation. Thankfully, due to Velma’s quick-thinking support, the man regained consciousness and has since made a full recovery!

The Heroes Among Us program is one of the premier community outreach programs in professional sports. Established as an initiative of the Boston Celtics in 1997, Heroes Among Us honors individuals who have made an overwhelming impact on the lives of others.
