SMITH COLUMN: East, West Oktibbeha have pride

It only seems right that East and West Oktibbeha County High Schools have full accreditation in its last school year.
In athletics, it means that the Titans and Timberwolves get to play full sports seasons with the chance for the postseason if they qualify. That wasn't the case last year and some athletes got to miss out on the experience because of the lack of accreditation.
The reason the schools lost that accreditation was that Mississippi Commission on School Accreditation found that the Oktibbeha County School District was in violation of 29 of 30 accreditation standards it reviewed, out of a total of 37 standards school districts must meet to retain accreditation.
According to district conservator Margie Pulley, the Oktibbeha County School District is back in compliance with all of the standards and the MCSA restored accreditation to the OCSD at its July 21 meeting.
