Meridian, Mississippi A former Mississippi State basketball player came to Meridian to talk to kids in Meridian's city summer basketball league about high character.
Tyson Cunningham recently graduated from MSU and now works for the university's Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He talked to the kids about staying on the right path in life.
"Knowing what it takes to be successful, and like I said, separating from negativity, and knowing what you want to do in life, knowing what you want to be in life, and knowing what it takes to get to those points," said Cunningham.
Cunningham says he hopes the kids will learn to do things the right way and never give up on the goals they want to accomplish.
