HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

While the Huntsville school board meeting took place Thursday evening, Madison County Commissioner Bob Harrison held a community meeting at the Harrison Center.

The focus of the meeting was on education. We asked him about the board's resolution approving a forensic audit of grant money awarded to his non-profit, the Northwest Huntsville Community Service Organization, but he declined to comment, saying Thursday's meeting was about the kids.

"Tonight was a call to action, to what we as a community need to be doing," he said. "Overall the concern was the quality of education, the inequality of education, and how we move from that inequality to equality."

Harrison said the one message he hoped to send with the meeting is for community members to get involved and take an active role in children's education.

He said he will have a complete statement regarding the audit next week.
