Remembering Titans

MERIDIAN — REMEMBERING THE TITANS - MCC President Dr. Scott Elliott, right, encountered a famous high school football coach, Herman Boone, left, who inspired the Disney-produced movie "Remember the Titans," at the annual state conference of community college Career & Technical faculty. The conference was held earlier this month in Pearl, and Boone served as the keynote speaker. Boone's character in the movie was played by two-time Academy Award winner Denzel Washington.  Boone joked with the audience of several hundred, saying, "I know you were expecting Denzel, but you got me instead."
