Area schools will get improved security infrastructure courtesy of a grant from the governor’s office. Amherst county will receive more than 93,000 from $6 million-dollars of security grants that will be distributed to school divisions across the state. In the Lynchburg area, only one other school system received a larger grant award: Lynchburg City Schools will receive nearly 100-thousand for projects at two of its schools. Appomattox, Bedford and Campbell Counties will receive a portion of the grant money. The School Security Equipment Grant was established in 2013 following the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.
