On the first day of December at 5:20 in the evening an EF3 tornado made its way through Taylorville. Superintendent of Taylorville Schools Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau made the decision to close school on Monday to make sure the building was safe for students to return.
Fuerstenau says the Taylorville School District is fortunate to have received minimal damage from the storm.
Fuerstenau is proud to be a Taylorville resident saying how impressed he is with how quickly and with what great strength this community rallied together.
Fuerstenau appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
