Dr. Jimmy Simmons said he was asked to continue to serve as part of the Beaumont ISD Board of Mangers by Texas Education Agency Commissioner Mike Morath to assist in making a smooth transition to an elected Board of Trustees after the May election.

“It was a tough decision,” Simmons said, but he agreed to stay on. According to him, the request to stay was one directed at the entire panel of Board of Managers members, who have been in place for nearly three years already. The group unanimously accepted the elongated call of duty.
