Penn State Harrisburg’s School of Public Affairs will offer Homeland Security: An Update in Research and Trends, a continuing education short course, August 4 through 8.
In a crisis you want a leader who is calm, unassuming, and honest. You want someone just like Harold Denton, said Dr. Holly Angelique, professor of community psychology at Penn State Harrisburg.
Denton, a nuclear engineer who had no experience dealing with the public, wasn’t flashy or loud or famous. But when the Three Mile Island (TMI) nuclear power plant suffered a partial meltdown in March 1979, Denton was the perfect person to explain the situation to a panicked public.
Penn State Harrisburg has begun preparing for the demolition of the Alice Demey Elementary School, set to take place later this month. A security fence has been installed around the project and actions have been taken to preserve and protect trees on the site. Interior work will begin soon.
The school, located at Wharton and Catherine Streets in Middletown and adjacent to the Penn State Harrisburg campus, was purchased by Penn State after the Middletown School District closed the building for good in 2003.
This week-long prep session are for students in grades 9-12 and features separate verbal and math prep courses.
