Livingston ISD Superintendent Dr. Brent E. Hawkins, the Livingston High School Career & Technical Education Department and The Mane Salon were the hosts for the Livingston-Polk County Chamber of Commerce’s Business After Hours Thursday. Located at 411 West Park Dr., The Mane Salon is LISD’s cosmetology lab and a working salon. Special guests in attendance were Lamar State College-Orange President Dr. Thomas A. Johnson, Lamar State College-Orange Provost & Executive Vice President Dr. Wendy Elmore and Lamar State College-Orange Dean Kristin Walker. Livingston ISD entered into an agreement with Lamar State College-Orange, Lamar State College-Port Arthur and Lamar Institute of Technology during the summer of 2023 for the three Lamar schools to teach dual credit classes to LISD students. Through the agreement, there is no charge for any enrolled student who is socioeconomically disadvantaged, which is approximately 75% of the high school population. Furthermore, LISD only pays $45 per credit hour for every non-socioeconomically disadvantaged student. (l-r) Livingston High School Assistant Principal Chad Lanham, Johnson, Elmore and Hawkins.
