Township can apply for grant to fund new middle school position

During its workshop meeting Monday, Whitehall Township Board of Commissioners agreed to move forward with hiring an additional resource officer for Whitehall-Coplay School District in the wake of last month’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 people dead.

“What happened in Florida — we don’t want to see that happen here,” board President Dennis Hower said at the workshop meeting. “This is an important topic, given what’s going on in the world today.”
