FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) – Gov. Matt Bevin and U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos announced 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 High 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 following the unspeakable tragedy.

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.  The funds are available for costs that are reasonable, necessary, and essential for activities that are intended to restore a sense of safety and security in a school and help the victims and students stabilize their lives.

“We are grateful to Secretary DeVos and the U.S. Department of Education for these grant funds that will support the Marshall County community as they continue to heal,” said Gov. Bevin.  “Following the heartbreaking events of January 23, West Kentuckians showcased to the world their exceptional strength, faith and resiliency.  Our Commonwealth continues to stand united with the students, educators, and families of MCHS, as we utilize every potential resource available to move forward together.”

The initial allocation of $138,213 provided by the Department of Education will go towards additional staffing support for the school.
