Summer officially began for Lubbock ISD students Thursday afternoon. We caught up with Bowie Elementary students hugging their friends goodbye as the school year came to an end. Some students celebrated the occasion with a special ride home. We found one student riding a go-cart home and others taking limousines.
Meanwhile, Rush Elementary is celebrating its 50th Anniversary. Thursday, teachers marked the occasion by filling a time capsule with projects, T-shirts and pictures of the students. The capsule will be buried this summer and dug up in another 50 years.
And while school is out for LISD students, for the school board, work continues. Board members certified the May 15th School Board Election Thursday. Judge Sam Medina then swore-in his son Dr. Erik Medina as District One Trustee. Medina defeated Louis Trejo with 57% of the vote in the election.
