Tekoa phone warning system looming
March 18, 2021
TEKOA — It was two years ago when someone had seen a suspicious person walking on school grounds and a Tekoa school went into lockdown.
Resident Wendy Sienknecht got a call at home from the school’s notification system, since her husband is a bus driver.
“I locked the doors and looked out my windows all afternoon,” she said.
Then her mother-in-law and her niece drove up.
“Did you hear what’s going on?” Sienknecht said.
“No, we were at Chicken Tuesday,” they said, referring to the special at the former Feeding Station restaurant. It was the start of an idea.
