Dunavant resigns from school board

During a tearful reading of a prepared statement, Mellisa Dunavant resigned her position from the Mount Vernon ISD Board of Trustees during their meeting on Monday, August 21.

The resignation was effective immediately and followed an almost four hour closed session that ended at 11:48 p.m. For more information from the school board meeting, see the August 24 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
