(CHARDON)— The principal who oversaw Colorado's Columbine High School during and since the deadly 1999 shootings there will discuss the recovery process in the northeast Ohio community where three students died in a 2012 school shooting. The News-Herald in Willoughby reports Columbine principal Frank DeAngelis will speak in Chardon next Wednesday.
The event sponsored by Chardon Schools and the Chardon Healing Fund occurs about a week before the two-year anniversary of the rampage at Chardon High School that killed three students and injured others.
Nineteen-year-old T.J. Lane pleaded guilty and is serving life sentences for the shooting at the school east of Cleveland. He has appealed his sentence. Investigators have said Lane admitted to the shooting but said he didn't know why he did it. He attended an alternative school.
