The Oregon-Davis School Corporation has a new school resource officer.
The school board Monday night unanimously approved the hiring of John Kohles as a part-time employee. He replaces Kyle Hinds, who resigned in October. Hamlet Police Chief Frank Lonigro has continued to work as a resource officer for the corporation.
Interim Superintendent Jim Dermody met with Kohles prior to the board meeting and says he was impressed with his genuine love and concern for the children who attend school at O-D.
The corporation received a Secured Schools Safety Grant two years ago to cover the cost of hiring two school resource officers.
