Lance Thompson Elementary Namesake

Written by Cindy Chapman

Lance Thompson Elementary is the district’s newest school and was named after Roger Thompson and Sharla Stockard’s son, Lance. Born in 1981 in Justin, Lance’s young life was cut short unexpectedly in 1987. Lance’s family has a long history of educators, including his mother who served more than a decade as Student Data Services Coordinator for NISD until she retired in 2001. The Thompson family donated the land in which the Lance Thompson Elementary currently resides. Lance Thompson’s legacy continues in this one-of-a-kind elementary school, as it is already winning awards for design.
