    Pete Ragus Honored

    Former LISD Athletic Director Pete Ragus was recognized at Thursday's regular meeting of the Board of Trustees after receiving a letter from President Obama acknowledging his role in leading the first integrated football team to the 1960 UIL State Championship while at Roy Miller High School in Corpus Christi.

    The recognition was prompted by a letter written to President Obama by Paul Warnke, whose father served on the school board during Coach Ragus's championship win.

    From L to R: Board President Melissa Collier, Athletic Director Mike Meeks, Coach Pete Ragus, Paul Warnke and Superintendent Berhl Robertson, Jr.
