LOCKNEY, TX (KCBD) - On Tuesday, some area first responders were recognized for their efforts the night of January 11th, when Lockney High School went up in flames. Volunteers from Lockney and Floydada worked to put out the flames.
State Representative Joe Heflin and Lockney ISD Superintendent Phil Cotham presented some of the volunteers with a shadowbox of mementos.
"We recognize all the firefighters and police officers that are here on a volunteer basis putting in good work for us, getting our fire out of course, but all the other things they do that sometimes go unrecognized," said Cotham.
The shadowbox will hang in the new high school, once it is complete which Cotham says will be in about 15 months.
