MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) - State Representative Jay Hughes was in Moss Point Thursday night with a powerful message about advocating for more public school funding.
City and state leaders, as well as parents and educators, converged at the Pelican Landing Conference Center, to discuss how to best move the Moss Point School District forward.
Gail Smith, President of the Parents for Public Schools Moss Point Chapter, said she's excited to see the positive momentum Hughes is bringing to the Moss Point School District.
"I'm excited that we can build parents interest, rejuvenate public interest because we have an election coming up next year," said Smith.
Smith said she hopes the knowledge brought to the city by Rep. Hughes helps the new literacy program Moss Point is starting up.
These two public leaders say education is a top priority and they're hoping to see a turn around in the city of Moss Point.
