McNair staff's courageous efforts celebrated

Posted: Updated:
DECATUR, Ga. -

A little more than a week after a gunman walked into a DeKalb County school and fired shots, school and police officials held a celebration of courage and excellence on Friday for the entire staff at McNair Discovery Learning Academy.

They wanted to say thank you to the teachers and administrators that ushered all 800 students to safety that day.  Everyone was recognized for their courage, dedication and sacrifice.

School workers were treated to a reception.  It was an afternoon to relax and be spoiled by all those who applaud what they did that day. 

On the day of the incident, every student was out of the school and accounted for within 40 minutes.
