"On the day that the thing happened I was watching TV and it was very impressive the way the students handled themselves in front of the TV cameras. All of them spoke very positively about being able to handle the situation. It reflected very well on the school and on the community," said Kurt O'Bryan, school board treasurer.
The school's resource officer was the first one to respond to the classroom where the shooting incident took place on Dec. 2.
