Fine choice for principal

It is my understanding that Mr. Robert White is the new principal of Lampasas High School, and that his wife, Shelley, is serving on the faculty. In my judgment, finer choices could not have been made. I have admired both of them since their student years at Howard Payne University. Early on, I thought them to be capable, committed and serious students, so their success in the field of education comes as no surprise.

I have known Robert’s parents since their student years at HPU, where they met and married a half-century or so ago. They, too, were wonderful educators.

Shelley and Robert have servant hearts, and they’ll endear themselves not only to fellow students, but colleagues and parents as well.

In short, I believe they will continue the tradition of excellence for which Lampasas ISD has long been known. I wish them well.

Dr. Don Newbury

Chancellor Howard Payne University
