Newbury needs Governor's Academy to help out

(Continued)

Many of Governor’s students come from different parts of the country and around the world. The parents of these students are intrusting the academy with the safety of their child. I would hope it’s in the best interest of the academy to be able to reassure these parents that their children are safe 24/7 and that the campus is not situated in a town with diminished emergency services. With the current holes in the local fire and police budgets, the academy may no longer be able to make this promise.

The academy is a philanthropic organization with a large endowment behind it. Hopefully they will see, as they have in the past, that the town of Newbury is in need of their assistance now more than ever.
