The gym at Mount Vernon Elementary School was packed Wednesday night with parents and students in a sometimes heated discussion with the Barbour County School Board.
"It's a very family orientated school. My best money is spent on my children getting an education in this school, parent Kenneth McElroy said. "The leadership that this school has is just bar-none. They're not just teaching the kids everyday math, reading, and social studies. They're teaching them behavior base things that they're going to use out in the real world."
A third public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday at Philippi Elementary. The board will vote on the closures on September 30.
