  • In Lamar County, the Paris News reports that North Lamar ISD superintendent Kelli Stewart has been nominated for Region 8 Superintendent of the Year. Winners from each of the state’s 20 education centers will compete later this year for the Texas Association of School Board’s Superintendent of the Year. North Lamar ISD voters approved a $51 million bond initiative in May of last year. The approval came in the wake of two failed bond measures. The Paris News also reports enrollment has rebounded in the district and campuses have improved and added security and safety resources.
