BISD, LU wrapping up school supply drive
Beaumont ISD and Lamar University are wrapping up a middle of the year school supply drive.
This afternoon the superintendent, Dr. Timothy Chargois, and Lamar University president, Dr. Kenneth Evans, along with BISD's student body presidents delivered school supplies to the BISD administration office.
The supplies will be distributed to thousands of elementary school students before Thanksgiving.
The goal of the drive is to make sure elementary school students have the necessary tools for learning throughout the year.
Students launched the drive as part of a competition within the Texas State University system.
