Liberty Christian School has done an excellent job preparing these young minds for their future ahead.”


Commissioner Bush began the morning by engaging with 4th grade students in an mini Top Texan tournament. The enthusiastic 4th grade students were eager to learn more about the historical prominent leaders who helped shape our great state.
