Bossier Parish is building a new Elementary School that will be named the "W. T. Lewis Elementary School".
This is in honor of our "Tommy" Lewis that graduated from Minden High School in 1953. Tommy was Superintendent
of Bossier Parish Schools for several years before his death. Tommy was in the Minden High School band and played
the bass drum. He was a member of the All State Orchestra along with Wayne Barron and W. C. Floyd. Tommy Lived
on Goodwill Street across from Hunters Playhouse and was always so nice and friendly. Just one of the many Minden
High School Alumni that went on to accomplish great things and make a difference. He was married to Jeanette Dove,
died in a Shreveport hospital in Caddo Parish, La. on 13 March 1999, and was buried in Shreveport, Louisiana.
