The Lampasas ISD Board met Monday evening in what turned out to be a brief meeting of about fifteen minutes.
With few items on the agenda the Board turned its eyes toward recognition of Taylor Moore who recently competed in the Cross-County State finals in Round Rock. Taylor had finished 74th out of 147 competitors. Her coach, James Allison, pointed out that the winner of the event finished only a few seconds ahead of a large cluster of runners that included Taylor. He went on to cite that she was a three-time state qualifier in the event and a four-time regional qualifier.
Mandy Walsh, Economic Development Director for the City of Lampasas, addressed the Board in the Open Forum regarding the City’s technology infrastructure and the need for a robust broadband to attract more internet providers. She distributed a survey to the Board that will be going out to residences and businesses. The purpose of the survey is to validate Lampasas’ ability to support additional internet providers, which should increase capacity, lower costs, and improve service to the community.
On a related note, Supt. Chane Rascoe announced that the new School Resource Officer (SRO) Eric Hernandez started work yesterday at the High School.
