The State College Police Department has filed charges of DUI against Aaron Workman. Mr. Workman was the head coach of the SCASD swimming and diving team at the time of this incident. However, we want to emphasize that no students were involved in this incident, nor had Mr. Workman been driving a district vehicle.
While this is an unfortunate incident, I want to commend our transportation department staff for their diligence and prompt action to ensure the safety of our students.
