BL BoE approves two new School Resource Officers

Submitted by Sally Stolly

The Benjamin Logan Board of Education met Monday evening.

The board approved two new School Resource Officers, Neill Rhodes and Rick Herring, and they will start on Tuesday, September 6th to add an extra layer of protection at the school.

During their first couple of months, Rhodes and Herring will get acclimated to the culture of each building and set up a home base for relationship-building in a particular school building.

In Superintendent John Scheu’s report, he said training is underway for the potential armed response team. 22 staff members are interested in being trained.

The firearms training and range practice were offered in two sessions with more hours to be offered. The Logan County Sheriff’s Office provided the ammunition for the training.

Here are the highlights:
