Several people have approched the HISD School Board about changing the name of Henderson Lions Stadium to the Fred Jackson Memorial Stadium to honor Fred Jackson, who was the football coach in the 60's. What are your thoughts??? I think it's crazy!!! There has already been discussion at a school board meeting. The agenda just had "Stadium Change". Sounds like the board is trying to sneak one past us! This sould not be something that they can do without voter appoval!!! This is everyones stadium, not just theirs. Let's keep it Henderson Lions Stadium!!!!

If we don't keep up with it, It will be named something else too like in Tyler. For intance: The Cellular One Lions Stadium or McDonalds Stadium... So everyone keeps your ears to the wall. I think it should stay Henderson Lions Stadium. Maybe they should work on making the parking better.

And if it is named after Mr. Jackson, some ohter familys will get their feelings hurt(that's just Henderson)
Same with the new School(s) they are building, will they name it Wylie Elementary?

If you had read the HDN you would know the board did not bring the name change up. Two individual s did, one from henderson and one from longview,
so get your facts correct.

My understanding from someone who attends school board meetings is that it is a done deal at the november meeting......better get some people up there if you don't want it to happen......I agree it should not be changed.....I don't know Mr. Jackson either & have nothing against him, but what about that ex principal that gave a few million dollars to the school a few years back???? Lots of people have been a good influence on kids here I would imagine.......

Leave the stadium name alone. If they want to name one after Jackson wait till a new one is built...which will never happen. Why not name it George Boals field...he was a lots better motivator. Jackson won lots of games for sure but he wasn't a good winner.
