    Starting August 22, 2022, all students will be required to use a clear back on campus. Some of you may be applauding the move, while I imagine there are others who find this to be an overreach.  I would like to provide you with the reasoning.

    Last May we collected hundreds of Lamar uniform parts from our graduating seniors.
