Marshall County High School is receiving a grant to assist in recovery from a deadly school shooting.
The ‘School Emergency Response to Violence’, or ‘SERV’ grant totals $138,213 and comes nearly seven months after a student opened fire on his classmates killing two and injuring more than a dozen.
Governor Matt Bevin announced the grant Friday alongside U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.
Bevin and the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet worked closely with the Marshall County Board of Education and the community to identify needs within that qualify for SERV funding.
The grant will aid in additional staff support.
