WOODVILLE – Monday evening marked a chapter in Woodville ISD’s “building the future,” according to superintendent Lisa Meysembourg.

The WISD Board of Trustees, along with Meysembourg and three members of the committee of community members responsible for promoting the bond issue that passed allowing the project’s construction, broke ground for the new Woodville Elementary School campus.

The site is located just west of the Woodville High School and Woodville Middle School campuses, on US 287. The new building is the feather in the cap of a slate of district-wide improvements made possible by a $47.8 million bond, which the voters passed in 2022.

Prior to the bond issue going before voters, a district task force was appointed; made up of various members of the community. The consensus was that a new elementary campus was needed to replace Wheat Elementary and Woodville Intermediate.

Eleanor Holderman, Lauren Conner and Trey Allison were on hand from that task force, which Meysembourg said represented a sort of PAC to stress the importance of the bond issue to the voters.

Representatives from Gallagher Construction, the firm building the project, along with reps from Goodwin, Lasiter, Strong, which is the firm responsible for the design phase, were on hand.

In his remarks after the ceremonial groundbreaking, WISD board president Jimmy Tucker spoke of the importance of the project for the future of the district and gave thanks to everyone who had a part to play in its process. He ended by thanking Meysembourg, whom he called “the greatest superintendent in the state of Texas,” and noted all of the work she put in, attending meetings and travelling to workshops and other endeavors to help with the project.
