    • SAN AUGUSTINE TRIBUNE Thursday January 13, 2000

      Memory Walk Brick--This is one of the 650 engraved bricks that will make up the San Augustine Garden Club's "Memory Walk" on the Southwest part of the Courthouse lawn. This brick was on the top of the stack when the Garden Club received the shipment this past week. This particular brick is in honor of Lurette Mitchell, an elementary teacher for over 40 years, most of those years spent in the San Augustine Schools. Mrs. Mitchell now resides at Twin Lakes Care Center.

      The May 10, 2007 issue of the San Augustine Tribune featured a photo of a Teacher's Reception held at the Twin Lakes Center. Lurette Mitchell was pictured, and it was noted that she taught for 47 years mostly 2nd grade, starting out in a one-room school in the Harmony Community, later teaching in San Augustine.
