 Northern Local Retraction


In Response to the December 22nd article in the Perry County Tribune:


Northern Local Schools did NOT host an assembly that was conducted by the Quasar company promoting the safety of biosolids.


Over the last eight years Sheridan Middle School has invited local business professionals to speak to students about careers in their respective fields.  One of the presenters invited to speak to the six grade class is the Wastewater Plant Manager for the City of Columbus. The topic of the presentation gave the broad scope of what happens to wastewater as it goes through the sanitation process.


If there are questions or concerns regarding the article from December 22nd, please contact the superintendent at Northern Local Schools.
