Citizen Hero Hawks Game

A Dubuque nurse will be honored in front of thousands of football fans Friday for her quick response in saving a man’s life earlier this year on Clarke University’s campus. In March, Katie Gudenkauf was attending an indoor soccer tournament at Clarke’s Kehl Center when one of the players blacked out after his heart stopped beating. Gudenkauf and several of her friends and fellow nurses were nearby and within minutes, she began first aid, eventually saving his life. Gudenkauf will be recognized as Iowa’s 2019 “citizen hero” during halftime of the Hy-Vee Heroes Game this Friday, Nov. 29, when the Iowa Hawkeyes take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Nebraska. Gudenkauf graduated from Clarke University in 2018. She is currently a family practice nurse practitioner at Grant Regional Health Center in Lancaster, Wisconsin.
