Dear Meridian Community and Family,
It is with a heavy heart that I share this sad news with you. Meridian School District lost a tremendous advocate and statesman early Sunday. After a long battle with sarcoma, Meridian School District Board Director Brian Evans passed away. His wife Connie shared he was now at peace, that he loved life, loved adventure, and thoroughly enjoyed his role as a Meridian School Board Director. Many of our teachers and employees knew and enjoyed Brian’s friendship for decades.
Brian served our Meridian Community as a Board Director (and Board Chair for a period) since January 2006. I was honored to learn from Brian, enjoy his perspective and support, and work with him during much of his time with the District. I experienced his influence firsthand as a building principal and then recently as superintendent. Brian endured many surgeries, much radiation, and chemotherapy over the years. He has persistently demonstrated the same desire to serve and always exhibited a high level of engagement.
