HOPE — Flat Rock-Hawcreek School Corp. began preparing for a different type of severe weather Tuesday.

Engineers recommended the district upgrade the doors leading to the cafeteria at Hauser Jr.-Sr. High School, which also serves as a concrete tornado shelter certified to withstand an EF5 tornado.

Tuesday, board members approved spending $32,500 for two hallway doors and two exterior doors.

At the reorganization meeting, Andy Hunnicutt was re-elected as president, Greg Spurling was re-elected as secretary and Steven Wilson was elected as vice president. Jeffrey Cleland was reappointed as treasurer, and Charles Wells Jr. was reappointed as attorney.

The next board meeting will be 7 p.m. Jan. 21.
