A new endowment has been established with the Community Foundation of East Mississippi to help young people interested in theatre.
The Jimmy Pigford Endowment for Meridian Little Theatre was created in honor of its long-time artistic director.
Grant awards from the endowment will provide more access for young people.
MLT's youth productions provide entertainment and educational outreach to an estimated 8,000 students a year.
