Marshall County High School Receives SERV Grant

Governor Matt Bevin joined US Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to announce a $138,213 Project School Emergency Response to Violence (SERV) grant for Marshall County High School. On January 23, 2018, a student opened fire at Marshall County High School in Benton, killing two students and wounding others. The SERV grant will assist the school system in its recovery and further student support efforts. Secretary DeVos said the grant is part of an ongoing commitment to help the Marshall Community recover and ensure its students, educators, and parents are supported. Governor Bevin said they are grateful for the grant funds and that the Commonwealth continues to stand with those effected at Marshall County High School as we utilize every potential resource available to move forward together. Project SERV provides critical support to school districts and institutions of higher education that have experienced a significant traumatic event in which the learning environment has been disrupted.
