Information about the upcoming Saturday, May 5, bond election for the Lamesa ISD continues to be presented by Superintendent Jim Knight at every opportunity.
    Knight stresses that the $30.4 million bond is not being sought just to build and improve facilities for the school district.
    “It’s about the kids,” Knight said, adding that students should be provided with adequate space and proper equipment to help them be able to learn to the best of their abilities.
    On Monday, Knight presented information about the bond at the board meeting of the Lamesa Area Chamber of Commerce and the joint board meeting of the Lamesa Economic Development Corporation and Lamesa Economic Alliance Project.
    Staying true to his assertions that the bond issue is “about the kids,” Knight brought with him two students who serve as Superintendent Ambassadors to address both board meetings about what improved facilities would mean to them and other students in the school district.
    Camren Clement and Ryan Aguilar addressed the Chamber board meeting at noon, while Lisette Ramirez and Klarissa Ortiz spoke at the EDC board meeting that evening.
    Knight also invited any of the board members, as well as the general public, to contact him if they would like to see the problem areas at the schools for themselves. Arrangements can be made to allow them to visit the school, Knight said, and view the areas that would be addressed by the bond proceeds, if approved by voters.
