MHS to hold open house for Multi-Purpose Building

MERIDIAN —     The Meridian Public School District will hold its official opening of the new Multi-Purpose Building, located behind the south end zone of the football field, at Meridian High School from 5-6:30 p.m. today.

    With 10,478 square feet, the two-story facility will serve the school district in a variety of ways.

    The first floor contains a ticket office, varsity football dressing rooms, coach’s offices, athletic trainer’s room, equipment room, and laundry. The second floor contains athletic director's office, head football coach’s office, Driver’s Education classroom, and a large open area that will host various school events including School Board meetings. The facility also contains state-of-the-art media systems for the Board Room and coach’s video room.

    The Multi-Purpose Building was originally part of a bond issue that the city of Meridian passed several years ago. The building was designed by a local architect B.B. Archer of Archer Architecture and constructed by Larry J. Sumrall Constructors based out of Laurel. The total cost for the facility was $2,627,000.

    The February meeting of the Board of Trustees will immediately follow the open house and ribbon cutting beginning at 6:30 p.m. Board meetings for the remainder of the school year will take place in the Multi-Purpose Building as well. Parking for the open house, ribbon cutting, and Board meeting will be available in the parking lot that is entered from Poplar Springs Drive.
