Two Students Expelled over Gun Incident

The Meridian School Board voted Tuesday night to expel two students who allegedly had a gun or knowledge of a gun on campus at Meridian High School.

17-year-old high Kmondrae Daevon Curry was charged by police as an adult for possession of a weapon on campus Oct. 19. The other student still has juvenile status. His name was not released by authorities.

The board voted to expel both teens through the end of the current school year.

School superintendent Charlie Kent said both would be considered for re-enrollment next year, including the possibility of attending the alternative school and a GED program.

Police say the charge against Curry will be presented to the Lauderdale County grand jury in March.
