District leaders praised Trooper Josh Satterly for his work during Anderson County High School's academic breakfast.

"Trooper Satterly was recognized for his professionalism and outstanding work to stop what could have been a terrible tragedy in Anderson County Schools," Superintendent Sheila Mitchell said.

Dylan Jarrell, 20, was arrested Thursday and is charged with terroristic threatening and harassing communications. Investigators discovered a firearm, more than 200 rounds of ammunition, a Kevlar vest, a 100-round high capacity magazine and a detailed plan of attack in Jarrell's possession during a search. Kentucky State Police say he was caught backing out of his driveway with the means necessary to carry out the attack.

Satterly received a tip from a New Jersey woman who had a complaint about harassing communications Jarrell made toward her. This eventually led to Jarrell's arrest.

There was an increased police presence on all Anderson County school campuses Monday.
