Lincoln High School, a historically black high school in Missouri, has hired two new teachers in the wake of the shooting at the school.
Two Lincoln High students who were in the building when the shooting occurred on Wednesday have been hired as part of a new initiative.
The Lincoln High principal, who was not named, announced the hiring on Facebook.
The Lincoln High Principal says, “Today, we are announcing the hiring of two new Lincoln High school teachers.”
Lincoln High is located in the historic Black Belt neighborhood in Missouri.
The announcement comes after a series of shootings at other schools across the United States and a series that saw the deaths of a white teacher and a black man at a church.
The school was previously known as the Lincoln High Academy.
