Students at Panola College hosted a Black Lives Matter protest on Saturday, Sept. 5. The group drove from the Panola College campus to downtown Carthage, holding signs that said "Say Their Names" and "BLM."


Carthage native Meredith Shamburger has worked for the Panola Watchman since 2018. Before that, she worked at sister papers in Longview and Marshall; the Dallas Morning News; and The Daily Voice, a hyperlocal news company in Westchester County, New York.
