2001 - Individual Achievement Award - Beautification & Landscaping - Tom Inman
As the Student Council and teachers of Lindsay High
School note, sometimes we need to see familiar things through “new
eyes” in order to awaken to the possibilities for improvement. Their
new eyes came in 1998 in the form of a new principal, Tom Inman
Soon, lockers and restrooms were cleared of graffiti and
attitudes about graffiti were topics of discussions with students.
Fresh coats of paint, weeded flower beds, new benches, attractive
landscaping and other improvements renewed and refreshed the
45-year-old school building and campus.
Tom Inman not only led these efforts, he also helped
to establish a newly-built “Leopard Den” (pictured above), a welcomed
place for students to hang out during free periods. A judge called him
“a role model who obviously relates to and appreciates young people.”
Not only is the facility greatly improved, so are the attitudes, behavior and dress of the prideful students. TOM INMAN IS A PRINCIPLED MAN WHO IS GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA’S ENVIRONMENT!
