SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky businessman says he wants to make schools in his community safer, so he is donating alarms to all of them.
David Morris, who is president of Modern Systems Inc., told the Commonwealth Journal that he will donate high-tech alarms to every school in Pulaski County. Morris said he was inspired to make the offer after attending a local prayer vigil for victims of a mass shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.
Morris said after hearing local school personnel talk about making student safety a priority - even on tight budgets - he realized he could help. He says a panic alarm system will be installed in all public and private schools in the county.
