Parents from the Cotswold area were out in force to show support for keeping their kids at East Meck.  From WSOC TV’s Web site:

At Tuesday night’s school board meeting, more than 150 people from the Cotswold Neighborhood attended to try and persuade the school board to delay any decision. The board is not expected to vote on any potential change until late October or November. The discussion comes in response to the move to take hundreds of students from East Mecklenburg High School to fill the new Mint Hill High School, which opens next fall.
