JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) -- Two Mississippi lawmakers are being honored for their work to pass charter school legislation during the 2013 regular session of the Mississippi Legislature.

On Wednesday, The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools named Lt. Governor Tate Reeves and State Senator Gray Tollison of Oxford as 2013 Charter Champions.

The annual award is presented during National Charter Schools Week.

The award recognizes public officials for their outstanding service to the students, parents and families of the public charter school movement.

In a news release, NAPCS says Reeves and Tollison are the first public officials from Mississippi to be selected for the award.
