Leadership Lauderdale helps repair amphitheater at elementary school

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - A popular, outdoor attraction at a local school got a much needed face-lift and overhaul this week thanks to members of Leadership Lauderdale.

Leadership Lauderdale cleaned and made repairs to the amphitheater at West Hills Elementary. The amphitheater was in serious need of repairs, so volunteers with Leadership Lauderdale pitched in to help.

The group replaced all the boards on the seats, cleared and removed brush around the stage and cleaned the stage area. Principal Brooke Knight and her faculty say students are excited about their renovated amphitheater. Leadership Lauderdale is a program sponsored by the EMBDC that allows participants to enhance their civic knowledge.
