The school board met in a special meeting on Monday morning and agreed to accept applications for the trustee position.
The school board will vote to accept his resignation at the regularly scheduled meeting on August 11th. Applications will be accepted for a ten day period following that meeting.
School Board President Paul Drake said, “He was a tremendous board member, his insight is going to be missed, what else do you say, he will be greatly missed.”
On July 28th, the NL ISD Board of Trustees also voted to hire new superintendent John McCullough.
“Students do not have to be music majors to play,” said PJC music instructor and director of choirs Philip Briggs. “We have scholarships for jazz band musicians and they can be in any field of study.”
PJC is seeking instrumentalists with at least a high school level of playing experience and competence. Instruments include trumpets, trombones, percussionists, keyboardists, and woodwinds (alto, tenor or bass saxophone). PJC will supply percussionists and keyboardists, all others should have their own instrument.
“We will have open call auditions and scheduled auditions prior to the beginning of fall semester,” said Briggs. “Probably the third week of August. Contact the music department about the scholarship application at 903-782-0343 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. This should be a lot of fun.”
During Monday night’s board meeting, the North Lamar ISD board of trustees voted unanimously to hire John McCullough as the new superintendent.
John McCullough was the superintendent at Sulphur Bluff ISD for the past two years and will be replacing longtime NLISD Superintendent James Dawson.
A charitable trust and foundation combined efforts to award a scholarship in horology to Paris Junior College student Angelica Guevara, of Laredo. Horology is the art of watchmaking, one of several programs taught through PJC’s Texas Institute of Jewelry Technology.
“I believe Angelica was one of seven students who received the award nationally,” said PJC horology instructor Frank Poye.
The funds came from a donation by the Harold J. and Marie Borneman Greenwood Memorial Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation of $7,500 to the American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute ELM Charitable Trust. Recipients must be students studying watchmaking and watch repair. PJC belongs to the Research and Education Council of the AW-CI. Each year fund trustees award an equal share of available funds to students at REC member schools.
Students must receive a recommendation from watchmaking faculty to be eligible. ELM stands for Education in watch and clock repair, Library funding to lend horological texts and publish horological books, and Museum funding to preserve unique timepieces and tools for study, research and local viewing. The Institute is located in Harrison, Ohio.

“Not bad!” said Poye of the scholarship. “We are pleased on her behalf.”
