Meridian High Students Eligible for Scholarships

During Monday evening's Meridian school board meeting, it was announced that multiple students from Meridian High school are eligible to receive a college scholarship.

5 students from MHS will receive the scholarships, which were offered through an application process. Those 5 students have to yet to actually be chosen though. $8,500 was collected through donations from area families in order to provide the scholarships.

"In this day and age, it is very important for a student to start their collegiate career with some money in the bank so to speak," MPSD CFO Rebecca Stevens says. "It's a great opportunity for the students of Meridian High School."

For more information on the requirements for the scholarship, school officials say you can call the senior counselor at Meridian High School at 601-484-4439.
