Klein ISD Central Office Renamed After Esteemed Educator Frank A. Lemmon
The Klein ISD Central Office building has been renamed the Frank A. Lemmon Administration Building in honor of respected and beloved retired Klein ISD educator Frank Lemmon.
The Klein ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to approve this historic name change at the regular January monthly meeting.
“What a joy to honor Mr. Lemmon with the renaming of the Klein ISD central office building” Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown said. “This beloved educator has a long history in our district as a respected and honorable leader who positively impacted many lives over the years that he served in the Klein Family. He is a leader beyond compare, and we are so thankful to the Board for approving this much-deserved naming.”
Mr. Lemmon’s legacy dates back to 1972 when he started his career in Klein ISD by first serving as an Assistant Principal at Klein High School and later as the opening principal of Hildebrandt Intermediate in 1973.
After several years serving at Hildebrant, Mr. Lemmon was promoted to the position of Principal at Klein High School. From Klein High, he was again promoted to Director of School Administration and then Assistant Superintendent of School Administration from where he retired in 2000.
“It’s a great honor for my father’s name to be on the administration building,” Mr. Lemmon’s son, Steve Lemmon said. “My dad worked a lot of different jobs in the district, and he thoroughly enjoyed every one. Dad was always blessed to work with wonderful people and he loved every single job he worked here.”
Mr. Lemmon was known for his professionalism, gentleman-like demeanor, and above all, his commitment to the development of district administrators. After his retirement, Mr. Lemmon continued to serve the district as a substitute administrator filling in whenever and wherever necessary.
“Congratulations to Mr. Lemmon for this incredible honor. Your years of service and dedication to the students and staff of Klein ISD is greatly appreciated,” Board of Trustees Vice President Cathy Arrelano said in closing remarks at the meeting.
Mr. Lemmon’s daughter, Susan Parent, was also an accomplished educator who retired from Klein Oak High School in 2019.
Klein ISD is proud to honor Mr. Lemmon’s legacy in this way. Congratulations to Mr. Lemmon for this incredible achievement!
