“As a kid, I didn’t even have a key to my own house. Didn’t need one. We didn’t lock the door unless we went out of town,” Brown said
Although he won’t be around to see the progress made with the $126 million bond issue approved by voters in February, he has been involved in the planning. He is especially interested in the development of the university centers at the two high schools, a new educational concept to help the student transition out of high school to whatever is next for them.
Brown’s wife, Lonia, retired as principal at a Moore elementary school and the couple look forward to a move to the Dallas area where they will be near their three children and four grandchildren.
