    People ask what I am most proud of about my time in Lufkin, and there’s no one single thing I can point to, because there are so many.
  • Why it's important to vote
    I’ll never forget the first time I voted. It was 1995, my senior year in high school. My government teacher, Mr. Cyr, instilled in me the importance of voting and being an educated voter.

    When I went to school, our choices were very limited. I didn’t have the options afforded to students today.
  • Gifts that will last a lifetime
    It’s the holiday season, and through the hustle and bustle of buying presents and all of the festivities, I take the time to reflect on the gifts that really matter, the gifts that are lifelong, the gifts that years from now students will talk about and retell to their children and grandchildren.
  • Education has, in fact, made all the difference
    I was told that education would make all the difference, and when I stood onstage with the four men who were chosen among the more than a thousand superintendents statewide, I believed it.
