School Board President Bob Farrell Responds To Commentary In Newspaper

December 4th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

In response to a somewhat scathing commentary in Tuesday’s Cumberland Times News- Allegany County Board of Education President Robert Farrell downplayed the criticisms, instead focusing on what he calls vast improvements that have been made in the past year.
