Protect and Serve

Three new school police officers were sworn in by Judge Shearer on September 13, 2023.

Chief Lander commented, “I am excited to welcome new officers to the force to help keep our schools safe.” Officer Ryan will join Harrold School, Officer Kendgia will be here at the high school and roving all buildings, and Officer Karnes will join West Hempfield Elementary.

Their dedication to our buildings adds a level of reassurance for both students and staff alike. We appreciate our school police and all they do each and every day to protect and serve.

About the Contributor
Alyssa Manderach
Spartan pride runs deep for Alyssa Manderach, who is originally an Ocean City, Maryland native. She has spent the last 7 years working to embrace what it means to be a part of Hempfield Area. The Royal has been a dedicated passion of hers since she started writing for it two years ago during her sophomore year. Her work preserving events and memories for the newspaper has pushed her to pursue a career in journalism after graduating from college. Much of her time is also spent volunteering and working with the school as president of United Spartans. Between her time in these organizations, as well as many other clubs and honor societies, she has seen the opportunities to volunteer with local organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Beverly's Birthdays, and Westmoreland County Food Bank. Her plans for the upcoming years involve attending a four-year university, studying communications with a focus on media, so that hopefully she can enter the journalism field as a writer or editor.
