La-Darian-Brown-headshotThe East Texas Advanced Academies Board of Directors unanimously approved appointing local minister and law enforcement officer Rev. LaDarian Brown during their regular meeting Tuesday, March 9th.

"I can promise every ETAA parent and student you will have a present, visible, and active board member," he said. "Can’t make informed decisions if you are not."

Rev. Brown added that he is excited to work with the rest of the board and campus staff for East Texas Montessori Prep Academy (ETMPA), Bramlette, Johnston-McQueen, J.L. Everhart, Ware, and Forest Park Middle. 

A native of Longview and Longview High School graduate, Rev. Brown is senior pastor at Parkview Baptist Church and president of the Longview Area Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance. He also is a police officer, serving as a police area representative for a South Longview neighborhood.

“I’m honored. I consider this a privilege to be able to serve in such a capacity as a board member at ETAA,” he said. “I think that what the program is has been really good, I’m just glad we are going to have a board that represents the student body.”

Rev. Brown is now the fifth ETAA board member. Other members include board president Mr. Alan Amos, Dr. Selwyn E. Willis, Mr. Judson Murray, and Mrs. Ava Welge, who was appointed in February
