Meridian Receives Awards
Dr. Amy Carter, Superintendent of Meridian Schools, received a special award for courage at the PREPS Conference.
The Dan Merritt Courage Award was given at the first PREPS Winter Conference in 1996 to Dr. Dan Merritt who was chosen as the first recipient for his continued and repeated service to the Jackson Public School System.
