Big improvements in progress at Lamesa ISD

LAMESA, TX (KCBD) - Major renovations are underway at the Lamesa Independent School District.

Crews are constructing new administrative offices, renovating six classrooms, and upgrading the infrastructure in the high school.

The superintendent for Lamesa ISD says they take academics very seriously. Three-fourths of the 2013 senior class will continue their education at a college or trade school.

And that's not all. Drum Major Samantha Gonzalez says the high school band is phenomenal.

"This year was really significant, just with everything that happened. We're just really proud of the band we have and really lucky to have the directors we have," she said.

Gonzalez says they're working really hard to make it to the state competition this year.
