Board Votes To Change Name Of Stadium


By a 6-0 vote, the Beaumont Independent School District’s Board of Managers have decided

to change the name of the district’s high school football stadium from the Carrol A “Butch”

Thomas Educational Support Center to the Beaumont Independent School District Memorial

Stadium. The stadium had been named after the district’s former superintendent. The board

faced opposition on the name change by the Beaumont chapter of the NAACP. Board member

Joe Domino, who is leaving the board, abstained from voting.
