LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT/KARK) - An IT staffer within the Pulaski County School District is being dubbed a hero after he saved a student's life.

According to KARK, Jasper Llewellyn has been given the rare " Superintendent's Hero Award" this week.

Superintendent Dr. Janice Warren applauded Llewellyn for his action when he noticed a student searching online for specific ways to commit suicide.

He then traced the IP address and found out the student was at home.

He immediately notified administrators who called the child's parents and police intervened.

"I certainly believe that because of what Jasper did that this student is still with us today," said Dr. Warren.

The award has only been presented five times in the last decade.
