Chester County Press May 24 edition

05/23/2017 09:28AM ● By J. Chambless
In this week's Chester County Press, we explore the sensitive issue of how the local Hispanic population and the Kennett Consolidated School District are struggling to find common ground on the rise in deportation efforts throughout southern Chester County ... We cover the Oxford School Board, which recently adopted a $86.5 million budget for 2017-18 ... We cover the $800,000 contribution made by the United Way of Southern Chester County, and we make a trek to the May 20 Kennett Run ... From schools to arts and entertainment to Uncle Irvin, it's all here in this week's Chester County Press.
