The town of New Palestine will get some help in telling positive stories around the town thanks in part to New Palestine High School.
At its most recent town council meeting, council members heard from Wes Anderson, community and school relations director for the Community School District of Southern Hancock County, who proposed a partnership between his office and the town.
“I am interested in trying to serve more kids and help more kids get into marketing, public relations, graphic design, things of that nature,” Anderson told the council.
In his proposal, Anderson said he would select an unpaid intern, who is a high school student, to help with whatever the New Palestine’s officials may need.
Both council members Clint Bledsoe and Angela Fahrnow welcomed the addition with open arms, saying it is a great idea.
The council approved the measure with a 4-0 vote.
“Thank you so much for proposing this to us, we appreciate it,” council president Brandee Bastin told Anderson following the vote.
