GORHAM, Maine — “Survivor” winner Bob Crowley’s return to Gorham High School was interrupted when the school was evacuated following a bomb threat.

The school had planned an assembly Wednesday to welcome the 57-year-old physics teacher back after he won the $1 million top prize in the CBS reality show. But minutes before the assembly was to begin, a bomb threat was phoned in. The assembly was then moved to the Gorham Community Center.

Police are investigating the threat, and school was closed for the day.

Crowley, who lives in South Portland, emerged as the winner of “Survivor” in Sunday’s season finale. printed on August 19, 2017
