HARRISBURG – May 10, 2017 – Following a community meeting on the recent issues of violence and other unruly behavior at Cheltenham High School, Senator Art Haywood was joined by 30 citizens in a focused effort to provide mentorship and other guidance to students. Alongside community leaders, including Reverends Alyn Waller, Marshall Mitchell and Jerome Coleman, Senator Haywood will hold follow-up meetings with the district to build on this momentum.

He released the following statement:

“As a parent of Cheltenham High School graduates, former township commissioner and state senator, I know these recent incidents do not reflect the potential of our students and our community. I support Superintendent Marseille in the work he is doing to turn things around and I thank the many individuals who have stepped up to help. I look forward to a renewed CHS and Cheltenham.”
