Gay-straight alliance denied club status in Chambersburg Schools

Posted: Updated:
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

The Chambersburg School Board voted against students who wanted club status given to the Gay-Straight Alliance they had formed at the high school Wednesday night.

The board put off a decision back in January, but ultimately voted 5-4 to deny the group's request.

GSA President Amber Fogelsonger said one of the board members who voted against the group said that the alliance is similar to the existing multi-cultural group and therefore would be unnecessary.

"This time we're going to take legal action because they cannot technically deny us, because if there are three other clubs in school that are not school-related, they cannot by law deny our club," Fogelsonger said.
