Vaughn outlined the department’s cadet program for high school students during the get-together at the new Southport Municipal Complex, 137 Worman St. The facility, which houses city government offices, a council/board meeting room, police headquarters and a training academy, opens today.
“It took us two years to get to this point,” Vaughn said. “I’m really excited. We have enough space to do what we want to do, and it’s new. It’s probably the largest project Southport has ever done.”
Jeremiah, a freshman at Beech Grove High, did his first sketch of Allan a few days after the tragic shooting while in Al Stilley’s (right) classroom at Beech Grove Middle School. The drawing was placed on the whiteboard in the room for other students to view.
Jeremiah also did a sketch of Stilley with highlights from his 55-year journalism career that continues with The Southsider Voice. Stilley ended 12 years of service in the spring as staff support for assistant principals at Beech Grove Schools.
