A recent Missourinet article details the upcoming launch of the Council for School Safety Leadership in Missouri and features an interview with John McDonald. Here’s an excerpt from the article:
For the past 14 years, McDonald was responsible for the safety and security of 157 schools, 86,000 students and 14,000 workers.
“Columbine struggled for a decade to try and find a pathway to recovery and the school district 10 years following the tragedy was still traumatized. The trauma that you experience following a tragedy like that just doesn’t go away overnight,” he said.
