Fifth Street Baptist Church in Meridian was packed Sunday for a forum discussing the future of the Meridian Public School District.
It was organized to give local residents the opportunity to address the challenges the district faces going into a new year in August. They also addressed the concerns local residents have for the district.
Many people showed up with prepared questions that district officials took time to address.
Superintendent Charlie Kent answered questions from the audience. He was there with other district officials and school leaders.
