Released by Angela Jenkins with Tyler ISD:
TYLER, TX - The local surveyors have always felt a strong sense of responsibility to the community, and historically, have taken action in response to that call. It is because of this commitment, that when Tyler ISD had requested boundary surveys that include both John Tyler and Robert E. Lee high schools, the local surveying community responded. The group selected one of the campuses, John Tyler High School, to donate a substantial amount of time and services to complete the entire boundary survey for the campus.
“We’re doing this as a community service project,” said Kevin Kilgore, owner of K.L. Kilgore & Co., Inc. “We wanted to do something special for this campus because of everything they have gone through.”
