New high school and middle school named…

Kind of. I found these two (1 2) articles about the naming of the new high school and middle school at Ribelin Ranch. The high school is named after Lt. Vandegrift. I think the LISD website can do a better job of telling the news.

Board Names Vandegrift High School & Four Points Middle School

The Leander ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously at their June 19, 2008 meeting to name LISD High School #5 “Lt. Matthew Vandegrift High School.” LISD Middle School #7 has been named “Four Points Middle School.”

Lt. Matthew Ryan Vandegrift – a Leander High School honors graduate (Class of 1999) and athlete – was killed in Iraq in April 2008. First Lt. Vandegrift graduated from Texas A&M University with honors and a degree in international business, before enlisting in the United States Marine Corps in August 2005. He was killed just four days past his 28th birthday.

Lt. Vandegrift grew up in the Steiner Ranch subdivision — very near this new high school — and was an honor graduate at both the high school and college level. He participated in extracurricular activities, and demonstrated the highest character, plus a devotion to service demonstrated by the fact that he volunteered to defend the ideals of our great nation.

So there you have it. I got some emails from readers who would like another name for the high school. If you are or are not one of those people then there is a petition/survey going around trying to get a feel of the the name of the High School. Check out this link for that.
