On March 20, 2008, the Lamar County School District issued $12 million in general obligation bonds. Jon Pannell and Jim Pannell served as both Bond Counsel and Underwriter’s Counsel on the transaction. The proceeds of the bonds will be used by the School District to build a new auditorium, new construction and renovations to the football stadium, track facility, and Lamar County Comprehensive High School gymnasium, and for technology and security upgrades throughout the school system.
