The White Hall School Board voted Tuesday against firing Anthony Law. The name of the employee was incorrect in Thursday’s edition of The Commercial. The reporting of the incorrect name was based off of the school district’s minutes from the meeting. On Friday, the school district issued a corrected version of the minutes that included the correct name.
