Bob Gay Honored by County Commissioners

Chase Middle School Assistant Principal Bob Gay was recognized by the Shawnee County Commission last week for his role in getting Topeka Public Schools teachers trained to deal with emergencies.  Through Gay’s efforts, a number of teachers received Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training that included disaster preparedness, triage and disaster psychology, fire safety, hazmat and light search and rescue.  Because of Gay, there is now at least one teacher in each of the district’s schools that has CERT training.
