The Coleman Masonic Lodge has chosen three 2019 graduates as recipients of Scholarships.  The second president of the Republic of Texas, Mirabeau B. Lamar, was a Mason and is known as “the father of the Texas Public School system,” because his work resulted in the State of Texas setting up a public school system.  Young people who are outstanding achievers; who overcome personal difficulties or hardships; and those who accept the challenge to excel help make our communities, state, and nation stronger.  That’s why we are pleased to recognize Gracie Morgan Cole and Ethan Karl Straach from Panther Creek CISD and John Dylan Deramus from Coleman ISD as recipients of the Mirabeau B. Lamar Medal, Certificate, and $1,500.00 Scholarship.  These were presented today at CHS and PCCISD.
