Frederick B. Keller (R-86th); state Sen. John R. Gordner (R-27th); and State Sen. David G. Argall (R-29th), committee chair. The state Senate Majority Policy Committee held a public discussion of school safety, hosted by State Sen. Gene Yaw (R-23rd), in the Bush Campus Center on Thursday afternoon. The 90-minute session, the latest in a series being held across the commonwealth, allowed a diverse panel of stakeholders – district superintendents, principals, business managers and school board members; law enforcement; bus contractors; legislators and the legal profession – to share their concerns and best practices alike. The roundtable, open to the public and streamed live, was also attended by Penn College Police Chief Chris E. Miller and Elliott Strickland, the college's vice president for student affairs.
