Dallas Will Soon Probably Be Renamed Klyde Warren, Texas, so Get Ready

A friend of the program sent along this photo, of the newly-dubbed Klyde Warren Auditorium at the Lamplighter School.

Quick checklist:

1. Five-acre park

2. Private school auditorium

When I was in fourth grade, I had a sign on my bedroom door with a couple baseball bats that spelled out “BRAD,” so naming rights were a pretty big deal in my household, too.

I have a call in to school officials to see just when, exactly, young Klyde was honored with this auditorium. I’ll update accordingly. Until then, though, let’s take a quick tour through Lamplighter’s annual giving report.

Amy and Kelcy Warren donated between $25,000 and $49,999 from June 2010 through May 2011. Nothing to squawk at, but certainly not naming-rights territory. There was an anonymous donation of more than $1 million, and another of more than $500,000, though, so maybe that’s where Klyde’s auditorium came from. (Tangential find: the Wilson brothers donated between $50,000 and $99,999 in the same year)

In the 2012 report, the Warrens donated the same amount. Kelcy Warren also serves on the school’s board of directors.

If videos are more your speed, Lamplighter put together an incredibly entertaining video for this year’s annual campaign, complete with a guest appearance from the man behind the curtain, Klyde Warren.
