Wayne Staton was born in the Lynchburg, Virginia area in 1951 and lived there most of his life. He contracted polio at the age of 8 months. It left him with a weak right hip and leg.
He graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in Physics with honors. After college he started his career in computers and has worked in that field ever since.  Since 1999 he has worked at BMC Software, where he is a Senior Technical Support Analyst. 
In Virginia, he was a Briefing Leader for the Hunger Project and President of the Boonsboro Ruritan Club in Lynchburg, Virginia.  Here in Texas, he is active with Rotary International and Landmark Education. He is a past president of the Rotary Club of Sharpstown. He is on the board of advisors for Zeons, a Social Purpose Corporation investing in international development and emerging underserved markets. Its mission is to mobilize diverse resources to solve the world's most pressing problems, particularly those in developing countries.

Dr. Thomas Randle became Lamar CISD’s Superintendent of Schools in 2001. Under his leadership, Lamar CISD is known around the state for academic excellence.
During his tenure, the District has twice been recognized by Texas School Business magazine for its best practices. Lamar CISD has earned the HEB Excellence in Education Award for Best Large District and three campuses achieved the highest possible honor: National Blue Ribbon School.
Student success is also commonplace in Lamar CISD with multiple state championships in athletics and fine arts—among countless other honors and awards.
Dr. Randle earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Texas A&M University and a Doctorate from Oklahoma State University. At A&M, Dr. Randle was a Distinguished Student, and was named an Outstanding Graduate and a Notable Graduate nominee.
Dr. Randle began his education career as an agriculture teacher in Sweeny, then worked his way up the administrative ladder in Conroe ISD, as an assistant principal, principal and assistant superintendent for secondary education. He also served as superintendent in LaMarque ISD for six years prior to arriving in Lamar CISD.
Ultimately, Dr. Randle is still a teacher at heart. He has served as an adjunct professor at UH Clear Lake, Lamar University and Texas A&M University.
