Former Lamar University president Dr. Jimmy Simmons sent the following statement to KFDM News:
"I appreciate the confidence TEA Commissioner Michael Williams and others have in me, and I want Beaumont to know that we are up to the task, and it is a huge and critically important one.
At this point, all eyes are forward. Our job is clear. The financial house of BISD will be set straight and will be transparent to the citizens who fund it. Management will be policy-based, carefully reviewed, and ethically sound. As we make hard choices, we will strive to make the right decisions and our moral compasses will be the law and in the best interests of our children."
