Wednesday, Dec. 6, Lamar CISD dedicated it’s 24th elementary school in honor of a woman who dedicated her life to public service.

Kathleen Joerger Lindsey Elementary is Lamar CISD’s first school with a Katy address and is located in the Firethorne West subdivision. Lindsey was valedictorian of the Class of 1932 at Rosenberg High School. She went on to graduate from the University of Texas and the UT Law School, where she was one of only three women in a class of 300 students. She is believed to be the first woman attorney in Fort Bend County.

Her efforts helped found the Fort Bend Public Library System and she was instrumental in bringing the Richmond State School to Fort Bend County.

Lindsey was a faithful member of Holy Rosary Catholic Church and the Joerger-Lindsey Parish Hall is in recognition of her contributions to the congregation.

Friends and family of Mrs. Lindsey were in attendance for the ceremony.
