Chestor ISD received donations of fencing and carpet that they accepted at their board meeting Monday evening, November 21.
President Ray McKnight convened the board and asked member Vernon Lewis to lead the invocation and pledges of allegiance to the U.S. and Texas flags.

In a short agenda, the board first approved the donation of ornamental fencing that will provide a safer environment for the students. The donor wished to remain anonymous.

Secondly, the board approved the donation of carpet that will be used in their visitor locker room. Superintendent Cory Hines said that the carpet will "make a more welcoming experience for our visitors."The board went into executive session, and they did not take any action during that session.
