Legacy Freshman High School issues will be the focus of a community meeting in Midland


There was a time when Midland Councilman John Norman roamed the halls of Legacy Freshman High School (then Lee Freshman).

He participated in sports, choirs and other activities. Today, he lives just around the corner from freshman campus.

“I was close to that then and I’m close to that now,” Norman said Monday.

This is one of the reasons why he participates in a community forum about some more high-profile incidents that happened at school. District 1 School Board member Michael Booker is hosting the community meeting, which is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday at the MLK Jr. Community Center, 2300 Butternut Lane.

Booker said on Monday that the meeting (on the Midland ISD side) is for “the community to hear from Ms (Candace) Warren on what she has planned for the future of LFHS, to hear concerns and possible solutions from the community and also to see how the community (parents) can get involved to help and assist on campus when needed. »

Booker told the Reporter-Telegram in an email that he hoped to involve “more parents with the children on this campus” and “for the community to take note that Ms. Warren and MISD take past events seriously and work to make what is better to make LFHS a better campus than how the community sees it.

Norman wants to see what can be done – around the school and beyond – as a community deals with a campus with issues compounded by iPhones and social media. He said technology has obviously made the community more aware of where students, leaders and the community can do better.

He also said he wants the school, district and community to recognize that more needs to be done to tell the good things that are happening.
