June 14, 2016 - Few Timpson citizens know our town better than Timpson Area Genealogy and Heritage Society June speaker James Lowell Bogue. Born into a well-known Timpson family, Mr. Bogue attended Timpson schools and was a THS star athlete, going on to play college football after graduating in 1950. He married Timpson native Barbara Ann Young in 1951 and went on to coach at Woodsboro and Garrison before becoming Timpson's head football coach and elementary/junior high principal in 1963. In 1968, Coach Bogue was named high school principal. He became superintendent of Central Heights ISD in 1986. Retiring in 1992, he later served as interim superintendent of a number of other East Texas school districts. He now serves as Timpson's Municipal Judge.
TAGHS invites the public to join their members in hearing James Lowell Bogue at their June meeting at 2PM on Wednesday, June 15 in the Timpson Public Library on the corner of Austin and Bremond Streets.
