East Texas Schools Honored

Six East Texas schools are being honored by the Texas Business and Education Coalition for their excellence. Hudson Elementary in Longview, Lamar Elementary in Sulphur Springs, Lufkin Middle School in Lufkin, Marshall Junior High in Marshall, Moore Middle School in Tyler and Winnsboro High School in Winnsboro will all receive the award in Austin on November 20th. The schools were chosen out of more than 6,000 schools statewide and are part of only 118 schools to get the honor. The requirements are demographically similar schools with respect to percent of students meeting standards on state tests over the last three years.
