Mr. W.T. Lewis

Mr. William Thomas Lewis

W.T. Lewis Elementary School is proud to carry the name of a man that dedicated his entire life to teaching and to helping children become well educated, outstanding citizens. In his early years, Mr. William Thomas Lewis served in the Navy and also as a private investigator. Mr. Lewis then attended Louisiana Tech and became a teacher. He was also a principal in Bossier Parish and then served as our superintendent of schools from 1991-1995.

Mr. Lewis loved to fish, read, and watch the Tech Bulldogs play. With his nickname being Tommy and his love for the Bulldogs, it was a natural choice for our students as they elected "Tommy" the Bulldog as our school mascot!

Mr. Tommy Lewis passed away in 1999, but his memory will always be honored by the students and faculty at W.T. Lewis Elementary School.
