LHS Principal: Liberty High School Principal Bruce Lacefield is retiring effective June 30. LISD trustees will meet in special session this Thursday to discuss the process for hiring his replacement. The board is expected to develop a profile and name community members to serve on a search committee. That LISD trustee meeting is Thursday at 5:30 p.m. in the Admin Building on Grand Avenue. The public is invited.


DISD Facilities: Dayton ISD recently had a facility needs study conducted by PBK Architects out of Houston. According to DISD Superintendent Mike Kuhrt, that study showed the school district has approximately $100 million in needed upgrades to their campuses, and that doesn’t include any new schools. Superintendent Kuhrt said trustees recently approved more than $1 million to begin those upgrades. Some of it is heating, air conditioning and sewer systems across the district. In the near future, Superintendent Kuhrt said the Dayton school district will be putting together committees for a more in depth study and to consider how they can go about making those upgrades.  


Relay for Life: The 2013 Relay for Life, benefiting the American Cancer Society, is this weekend starting Friday night at 7 and continuing through Saturday morning at 7 in Liberty’s Memorial Stadium. Relay for Life raises money for cancer re-search, education and helping local victims of the dreaded disease, but it’s also a lot of fun. For information or to partic-ipate in the survivors lap, call Sandra Sterling at 936-336-3716.
