When school opens on Friday, Aug. 16, Moorefield High School students and staff will welcome a new face to its halls. Hardy County Sheriff’s Deputy Josh Vetter will assume the duties of Prevention Resource Officer at MHS.
“I’m super excited,” Vetter said. “I was in Moorefield High School the last two weeks of school and I loved it.”
The PRO program is a collaboration between the Hardy County Sheriff’s Department, the Hardy County Board of Education and the Hardy County Commission. The majority of funding comes through a West Virginia Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety Division of Justice and Community Service grant. The program is supported by the federal Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) program and the Juvenile Justice Delinquent Prevention Title II program.
