First lady Melanie Musgrove brought her anti-litter crusade to Meridian on Thursday, thanking volunteers for their work to keep Mississippi beautiful.
Musgrove spoke to a crowd of more than 100 volunteers, grant award winners, members of Keep Meridian/Lauderdale County Beautiful and others gathered for an annual appreciation luncheon.
Musgrove said the community partnership in the Meridian program was outstanding and the largest community partnership she had seen.
Mini-grant awards totaling $10,000 were also given.
In other stops in Meridian, Musgrove read to fourth graders at Lamar Elementary School, toured Ross Collins Vocational Center and visited the Main Event at the Lauderdale County Agri-Center.
She was accompanied by her daughter, Carmenrae, who was shadowing her mother as part of a career day project at her school.
