Terry High School

 

Established in 1980, B.F. Terry High School was the second high school built in the growing Lamar Consolidated Independent School District. Named in honor of Benjamin Franklin Terry, born in Kentucky in 1821, his mother moved his family to Texas in 1833. Terry eventually took on the responsibility of the family's sugar plantation in Fort Bend County, near the Brazos River.

He became a leader in Fort Bend County and was elected a delegate to Austin. Later Terry helped organize a group of Texas cavalrymen and was the leader of "The 8th Texas Cavalry" of the Texas Rangers. His regiment was known for their skill in riding and fighting. They were daring, adventurous, and quick and people admired them with a deep respect. The group actually called themselves "Terry's Texas Rangers."

The pride that "Terry's Texas Rangers" felt has been carried on throughout B.F. Terry High School's decades. Students and staff continue the traditions set in 1980 that Rangers Never Quit. Our Terry Ranger Pride is evident.
