"Lamar Elementary School and Lamar Avenue were named for Miribeau B. Lamar. The first Lamar school was built in 1890. Mirabeau was the third president of the Texas Republic ..... He came to Texas as a volunteer and joined Sam Houston's Army then went on to become president in 1838. He had a deep interest in the public school system and urged Congress to set aside land for future use of school.'
