“Lufkin High School is pleased to announce Lori Bennett as the new Assistant Principal for Student Activities. With Mrs. Bennett’s ability to build strong relationships and her positive disposition, we are confident that she will be successful in continuing the rich traditions of our vast programs and activities at Lufkin High School,” said Dr. Andre Emmons, LHS principal.
“I am looking forward to working with the students at LHS, helping them grow into successful, responsible young adults. I desire to guide them in the right direction in finding the organization that suits them best where they are successful and happy at LHS,” said Bennett.
Bennett and her husband Stephen, who is the Emergency Room Director at Woodland Heights Medical Center, have been married for 20 years. Together, they have two children: Abby, 17 who will be a senior and plays in the Panther Marching Band; Wesley who is 13 years old and an 8th grader at Lufkin Middle School. He, too, is in the band and enjoys playing baseball.
“You can find us watching and cheering on the Panthers, whether they are wearing a football, band, or a Spirit team uniform. We also love to use our travel trailer to go “glamping” at State and National Parks,” said Bennett.
