Keith Ming speaks to Lions on Ag Barn Project

Reprinted from The Vindicator

Liberty High School Ag Department Director Keith Ming updated the Liberty Lions Club Monday evening, Oct. 19, on the new Ag Barn which will help the high school meet House Bill 5 requirements. The 100'x100' barn was made possible by many donations, including Boomerang Tube (who donated all the pipe for the framework), Coburn Supply, Liberty Pest Control, Cooper Electric, the Ag Booster Club (who raised about $20,000 in a golf tournament last year), and many individuals. Ming said, "The only thing the school district will have to pay is a water bill and an electric bill. ... When the kids do well, it makes us feel good."  Ming has led the Ag department for 32 years. The Ag Department has 215 students this year.  The new Ag Barn will house 15 pens for hogs, six permanent cattle pens, six more if needed, seven to eight pens for goats and labs, a squeeze chute and scale, as well as an office. The welding classes are doing all the interior welding work.

Ming plans to have an Advanced Animal Science Class, which required 40% of the student's time spent in a lab setting. They will also offer a Plant Science Class in their 20'x40' greenhouse.

Ming says because many kids live in town and do not have space to raise an animal, the new barn will serve them well.

Ming says students can begin studying in the barn with small animals by Christmas.

Large animals can be in the barn by the fall of 2016, just in time for the next TVE Fair & Rodeo.

A security system donation has been committed by Rachel Odell, President of the J. C. Burnham Foundation.

Ming said Cooper Electric is donating all the labor and letting the school buy at cost for parts. Electrical work inside remains to be done.

The Liberty Lions donated $1000 toward the barn Monday evening.

Keith Ming is married to his wife, Robin, and they have two sons, Cody and Kyle.


Liberty High School senior David Brohawn building Eagle Scout Project to honor veterans

Reprinted from The Vindicator

David Brohawn, Eagle Scout Candidate with Dayton's Troop 8, told the Liberty Lions about his Eagle Scout project Monday evening. He is a senior at Liberty High School and participates in band, football and scouts. He is planning a 24'x24' construction cross formation of a walkway to surround the Liberty High School flagpole to honor fallen veterans who attended LHS.

The construction includes a granite bench under a shade tree on one side and a bird bath on the other. There will be a plaque to honor Liberty High School students who served in the military and died in service to their country.

His deadline for the project is Nov. 2. He is trying to complete the project before his eighteenth birthday to meet the Eagle Scout project guidelines of the scouts.

The Liberty Lions Club donated $300 toward his project. If anyone else would like to donate, please contact David Brohawn at 281-875-5909. Checks should be made out to his mother, Joan Brown.

Remembering Lion John Vinson

Reprinted from The Vindicator

John Vinson passed away peacefully at Houston Methodist San Jacinto Hospital Thurs., July 9, 2015 surrounded by his family.

John gave a beautiful gift as his final act by donating his body to science as a whole body donor.

This is not surprising since John was a very giving person.

He always wore a smile, always tried to inspire others and gave of himself in many ways including the Liberty Lions Club.

He spoke to recent Liberty Lions Club scholarship recipients June 29 about his own experience receiving a Lions Club $500 scholarship many years ago as he entered Rice University.

He was a hard worker and a true giver.

He will be missed by many.

There will be no visitation or memorial service, but if you would like to post your comments about John Vinson as you remember him, please do online at or on facebook.

Rest in peace, Lion John.
