Two Lock Haven women are staging a rally and vigil Saturday to encourage the community to support Aaron Fisher, the young man whose report to authorities led to the investigation of Jerry Sandusky.
The rally, in front of Central Mountain High School in Mill Hall at 11 a.m., will be to demand answers from administrators at school and the Keystone Central School District. Fisher is known as Victim 1, and he and his mother, Dawn Daniels, revealed their identities in a televised interview last week with ABC.
“I want Keystone to be held accountable,” said Judy Fox, one of the organizers who also knows Fisher’s mother.
A candlelight vigil will be held at 7 p.m. in front of the dike along East Water Street.

Fox said she hopes Fisher and the other victims “will be able to find peace, and our community will come together and support these victims.”
Fisher testified at trial in June that his first report to school officials went nowhere. A tearful Fisher said a school official told him Sandusky “has a heart of gold and wouldn’t do something like that.”
Daniels said the same in the interview with ABC last week.
Sandusky was convicted of 45 counts of abuse and sentenced to 30 to 60 years in a state prison.
For Fisher’s interview, ABC confronted school officials Karen Probst and Steve Turchetta, both of whom refused to answer questions.
Fox said she plans to demand answers at the Keystone Central school board meeting Nov. 1.
