The Canon-McMillan Horizon Foundation focuses its funding on innovative programs that generally are the dreams of educators and students but are beyond the regular school district budget.

The Foundation laid the groundwork for ninth-grade CPR training at Canon-McMillan High School, and partnering with Range Resources made it a reality. The Foundation set aside funding to train all ninth graders with professional CPR trainers for the 2020-2021 school year. However, due to COVID, the plan was moved to 2021-2022. The students will become qualified to perform CPR and receive an identification card stating their successful completion. The long-term intent of the Horizon Foundation is to train every ninth-grade class in CPR. Therefore, this program will be incorporated into all ninth-grade gym classes at Canon-McMillan High School moving forward. The Foundation feels that this program is the ultimate gift to the C-M community; by adding 1600 CPR-skilled students in the next four years. Who knows when they can save a life?
