May 30, 2019 Mobile, Ala. – Mobile United invites you to join Mayor Sandy Stimpson and Mobile County Public School System Superintendent Chresal Threadgill on June 11th at 5:30 p.m. at Moe’s BBQ in downtown Mobile for our 5:30 Forum. The topic on the table this month is education and the Mayor and Superintendent will discuss the future of MCPSS. Tickets, $10 online and $15 at the door, provide attendees with a meal and thoughtful discussion.
Where there was once talk about splitting the Mobile County Public School System into two separate school systems, city and county, that change is no longer on the horizon. As the school system moves forward as one and as the largest in the state of Alabama, what’s next? The 2018-2019 school year wrapped up on May 24th, which also concluded Threadgill’s first year as Superintendent. After working closely with educators and students over the last year, Threadgill has insight to share about what’s working, what needs change, and the vision for the future of MCPSS. We’ll touch on what you, as a community member, can do to be an advocate for the school system and to help bring about positive change.
Mobile United’s mission is to “unite the community through deliberative dialogue to train, convene, and engage leaders for positive action.” The 5:30 Forums allow the community to convene and practice deliberative dialogue.

Each Forum will be held at Moe’s BBQ downtown on Spring Hill Avenue at 5:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at bit.ly/june530 or on Mobile United’s Facebook page.
