Palmer ISD heightens security

Located along Interstate 45, just eight miles north of Ennis, is Palmer, just three square miles and 2,071 people in size, it has circled its wagons to protect its schools. Kevin Noack, who is in his ninth year as the superintendent of the Palmer ISD, along with members of the school board, watched and listened in 2012 following the senseless mayhem at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. “We were in a board meeting after Sandy Hook and a parent stepped in to plead with us to keep that from happening here,” said Noack on Thursday. “While there is no fool-proof defense against someone bent on doing harm, that meeting really raised our level of concern.” Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News.
