The week of December 9 held good news for Verona’s Police Department, VHS seniors and juniors got answers to their biggest questions about college, computer science students got to see the future at Yale, and more.

We began the week reporting on an analysis of law enforcement conducted by NJ.com. It gathered data on the use of force by 468 municipal police departments and the New Jersey State Police from 2012 through 2016, and Verona was found to have used force at lower rate than 384 other police departments, including those of many of the towns that surround us. For Verona’s new chief of police, the reasons are clear. Read more about the report here

Verona High School alumna Dr. Kathryn A. Foster (above) visited her old high school to talk to junior and senior students about what she knows best: college. The 1975 Verona graduate is now the 16th president of The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). But rather than make a pitch for TCNJ, Dr. Foster used her presentation to ease some of the anxieties that students have about applying to any college. Here’s what she talked about.

Computer science has been the fastest growing area of study and Advanced Placement testing at Verona High School for the past decade. A bus load of VHS students got to see some new ways to apply their learning when they traveled to a computer science fair at Yale. 

What else happened in the week of December 9? HBW released its honor rolls for the first marking period, there was a Bitcoin bomb threat in Verona, our Representative-elect joined a Congressional group that will focus on gun violence prevention, and the town still needs crossing guards
