N-B Flashback: SW, Bluffton schools net school security grants

At least two Wells County school districts have received funding from a state grant to improve school security, administrators at Bluffton-Harrison and Southern Wells have announced.

Southern Wells Elementary Principal Jon Purcell said Southern Wells will use the approximately $28,000 grant from the Indiana Department of Homeland Security to install cameras.

The Bluffton-Harrison school district received $39,890.55 partly to purchase portable badges with “panic buttons” for school personnel.

Bluffton-Harrison school board members discussed the grant and badges at their September meeting, and afterward, business manager Brad Yates more thoroughly demonstrated how they work. Click here too see the video, and learn more in the Monday, Nov. 4, News-Banner.
