FORMER BISD PRINCIPAL LOSES BATTLE WITH CANCER

  

The former principal of the Brenham Elementary School has died.

Fleming worked as an educator and administrator at schools across Arkansas and Texas, including the last five years at Brenham Elementary School, up until his retirement this past June.

Brenham ISD Superintendent Walter Jackson issued a statement this (Thursday) morning, in which he described Fleming as, “a kind and generous man who loved his family, church, students and staff.”

Jackson went on to say, “We remember our friend and brother Robert Fleming in the most positive light, and thank him for his dedication to Brenham ISD.”

Fleming also served his country as an officer in the United States Army and was a veteran of Operation Desert Storm.

Fleming was a former mayor pro-tem and city council member in Hewitt, TX.

He served locally as an elder at Champion Fellowship Church in Brenham.
