Supporters of Bartlett schools packed the auditorium at Bethel Church on Friday night to collect yard signs and hear from an all-star lineup of speakers.
Stressing the importance of voting YES! for Bartlett schools on July 16, the rally was kicked off by Rev. Kenneth Whalum, Jr., followed by Rep. Ron Lollar, former Bartlett school board member-elect Erin Berry, Shelby County School Board member David Reaves, Bartlett Mayor Keith McDonald, and Derek Venckus of Better Bartlett Schools.
Several members of the media were present, representing the Bartlett Express, the Memphis Daily News, the Commercial Appeal, WREG News Channel 3, WHBQ Fox 13, and ABC 24 Local Memphis News.
