Public expected to weigh in on drag performers at Hempfield High School

Although it is not on the agenda, an after-school event with professional drag performers is expected to be a focus both before and during Hempfield School Board’s meeting tonight.

A group of district parents and a Lititz-based nonprofit are holding a silent gathering before the board meeting, which is the first meeting since controversy erupted over the April 25 Gay Sexuality Alliance Club event, prompting the district to begin an internal investigation and place an individual on administrative leave.
