Proceeds from new tornado book go to Joplin Schools

How Joplin school officials responded to the May 22, 2011, Joplin Tornado is the focus of a new book, Hindsight: Lessons Learned from the Joplin Tornado by Zac Rantz, public information director for the Nixa School District.

The book is described in this way on its Barnes and Noble page:

On May 22, 2011, Joplin, Missouri, was changed forever by an EF5 tornado. The Joplin school district was hit hard by this event, but through the chaos, many lessons for schools can be learned. Looking back at the days, weeks, and months after the tornado, as well as other crisis events, this book asks questions and gives answers to help schools better prepare for a crisis.
A portion of the proceeds from this book will go to Joplin Schools to help with their recovery.

Those wishing to purchase the book can do so at the advertisement on the upper right hand side of this page.
