The Marshall Independent School District (MISD) has selected Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam, Inc. (LAN) to be the Program Manager for the completion of the voter-approved 2023 bond totaling $41.9 million. This bond required no tax rate increase for the Marshall ISD community. LAN will provide comprehensive program management services to ensure MISD’s initiatives are effectively implemented on time and on budget.

LAN will be managing the extensive Marshall High School Campus renovations and expansions. The 40-
year-old facility will see significant upgrades to its library and media center, cafeteria, music halls, and
common areas. The plan also includes the addition of a new state-of-the-art Career and Technical
Education (CTE) building to provide an accredited space for students to pursue certifications and
licenses for several CTE programs at Marshall ISD. A new auxiliary gymnasium will also be built, serving
as a dedicated practice facility for their colorguard, cheer and dance team.

JP Grom, AIA, LEED AP, PMP, CCM, LAN Vice President and Director of LAN’s Program Management
team says, “We are pleased to be returning to Marshall ISD to help the district realize the complete
transformation of its facilities following the success of their 2015 Bond Program. The expansions and
renovations to Marshall High School will provide an improved learning experience for students and

Construction is set to kick off fall 2023. Currently, the expansion and modernization of Marshall High
School is slated for completion fall 2025.

The bond initiative is part of the District’s master plan to meet the needs of the students and
community. MISD serves more than 5,000 students in Pre-K through high school. Currently, 1,390 of
those students attend Marshall High School.

MISD Superintendent Dr. Richele Langley sees the possibilities for improved learning in bright, inviting
spaces. “The high school is the heart of the District, and I could not be more proud of the residents who
are supporting us. Our desire is for every student to have the best facilities possible as they go through
our school system,” said Dr. Langley.
