Principal's Corner


Welcome, and thank you for your interest in our school. At LCST, our dedicated faculty and staff strive to foster an environment that will aid the students of Lamar County to become productive citizens by instilling in them skills and abilities that can put them ahead of their contemporaries. It is my distinct privilege to help direct this process.  The goal of LCST is to encourage students to exhibit 21st century skills and a work ethic predicated on those who have blazed the trail before us.   An open invitation is extended to all to come and visit our campus.


Ken Dawkins, Director
