Residents of the Lufkin Independent School District have cast 2,170 votes in favor of Proposition A and 785 against it.
“I’m thrilled that our community sees the need for a new middle school, multi-purpose facility and athletic fields at the high school,” Lufkin ISD Superintendent Dr. LaTonya Goffney said. “It was a team effort to get out factual information so that our community members could make an informed decision. Now, not only will our middle-school students continue to excel in the classroom academically, but they will have a safe, future-ready learning environment. Thank you, Lufkin, for supporting the school district and the vision to ensure that Lufkin remains the best choice for education.”
With all the votes counted, Hall Henderson has received 1,907 votes for trustee, followed by Matt Knight with 1,767, Scott Skelton with 1,300, Andro Branch with 1,130 and David Franssen with 417. Henderson and Skelton retain their seats on the school board, while Knight will join them.
