Education Foundation


Before year 2020, Angelina County will have an educational system with high expectations that drives both jobs and incomes through creation of a balanced mix of career, technical and professionally trained citizens.


Bonnie Denmon is  serving as the Chairman of the Education Foundation, as well as Chairman of the Chamber's Education Council.  After retiring from a career in the Medical field, she is anything but idle.  Her passion is education and she is currently on the board of Stubblefield Learning Center, Lotus Lane Foundation, and Gear-Up Advisory Board. Bonnie is a graduate of Leadership Lufkin and is a recipient of the Jack O. (Butch) McMullen Silver Spike Award. This is just "the tip of iceberg"of Bonnie's accomplishments and community involvement.  Look for great things coming from her leadership in Vision 2020.



The Education Strategies are specific areas to be adopted by Vision Partners.

The Education Council, a program created by the Lufkin/Angelina Chamber of Commerce, is also chaired by Bonnie Denmon.  The Education Council has established 6 goals or Priorities that are in alignment  with Vision 2020 Education Foundation's  Strategies, A2, A3, A6 and B1.  The Council meets on the first Tuesday bi-monthly at 4:00 p.m. in the Chamber Community Room.   See the Calendar for the upcoming meetings.
