LifeChanger of the Year Nominee Profile

« Return to Nominee List

Lester Banks, Jr.

Position: BISD Campus Monitor Supervisor
School: Bryan High School
School District: Bryan Independent School District
City, State: Bryan, TX

Support Lester

Lester Banks was nominated by multiple colleagues and friends. The following profile contains text from each of his nominations.

There are so many words that can be used to describe Mr. Banks - caring, sincere, giving, compassionate, to name a few. None of them seem to do him justice. Mr. Banks works at Bryan High School as a campus monitor and community service supervisor. That title doesn’t do justice to the impact he has on kids at his alma mater and the community as a whole. 

Mr. Banks spends a minimum of 16 hours a day giving back to his community. He’s one of the first people you see when you get to BHS, and the last person you see at night after any school activity. He attends practically every event held at the school, not because he has to, but because he wants to be there to support the kids. Mr. Banks can be seen selling football tickets during the football season, helping with security at sporting events, and helping oversee the concession stand at basketball games, as well as supervising students completing Saturday community service.

Mr. Banks can be seen using his own money to purchase tickets, supplies, food, clothes or shoes for kids in need. Often times, he spend enormous amounts of his time talking to kids in trouble, trying to get them to understand the real reasons why they have received a referral or have been sent to the office. He seems to be able to relate to the students on a deeper level. Any time there is a fundraiser going on at school; kids know they can count on Mr. Banks to support them.

"I teach students with special needs, and Lester is always coming by the classroom to visit with the students and knows them all by name," said an anonymous colleague. "He has provided snacks, field trips and parties for my kids, simply because he truly wants to. He is not required to do anything for them. Lester comes by just about every day to say 'hello.'"

Mr. Banks also volunteers at the Boys and Girls Club in Bryan. He gives so much of his time and effort to show students the importance of giving back to others, and to let them know that people genuinely care about one another. He demonstrates this on a daily basis by picking kids up to bring them to the club or taking them home. Mr. Banks tries to keep kids busy so they do not have time to get caught up in many of the negative things that pull children in the wrong direction. He has stated many times that he was given a scholarship to continue his education after high school, and he works to be able to provide the same thing to other students.  He feels that if kids are given an opportunity or shown how to improve their future, many will make the effort. All they need is to know that people care about them, and that's what he tries to show them on a daily basis. In honor of his father, he established the Lester Ben Banks Sr, scholarship fund, which has provided thousands of dollars to students to help them continue their education. It’s one of his ways of paying it forward.

In 2006, Lester received the Jefferson Award for his public service to his community. He was so humbled by this that he felt he needed to do more to live up to the principles of this award. He has also won the Trumann Award from the City of Brian in the past.

"I don’t think that there is any more that he can do above the tireless effort that he already gives. If there is any event going on around town, you can always expect to see Lester offering his service to do what he can to help out, especially when it comes to the kids," said Patricia Bailey-Jones, a colleague.

"This young man is just the jack of all trades," said an anonymous friend. "You can ask any body in the Brazos Valley about Lester Banks and you will get a true story about this young man that will bring tears to your eyes. You can even call the Eagle, and they will tell you a lot about what kind of person this man is."

After many hours of thinking about all the things that went on these last nine weeks. With school shooting and school fighting. I was just thinking about what our pastor said at church today. When was the last time you told some body thank you or that you love them for something they did for you.. Well after all that was said he then ask when was the last time you change or touch someone life or know some one who touch or change your life? After hearing all of that with tears in my eyes I could not help but to think about what was said and now I would like to thank a very special young man who is very well known in his community and have done a lot for all kinds of people blacks,whites, hisp.,Asia you name it he has always been there helping them out. Mr.Lester Ben Banks Jr. is a true life changer of the year person. He has done so much for thousands of people who can't keep up with it. He has bought us clothes, shoes, put money in our pockets, and feed the needy and even took care of the people that was living on the streets. Lester has done it all. The sad thing about all of this Lester did not have any money either. He took the money that his parents gave him or the money he made off picking cans and spending it on other people beside using it for himself. That just the way Lester was. Very hard sweet young man. He just the best in everything he does. He truly is the Life Changer Of The Year.

This man is amazing person and i am very thankful for him. i was shock that he didn't ask people to go on line and vote for him for the life changer of the year award. Instead he told the youth that it wasn't about him receiving anything in life it was about him giving back to his community. Then he said he will get his reward from God above. He is a true role model for our community and i am asking you to please accept my vote for this young man. Because God knows he is truly a life changer in my book.

I have served in Bryan ISD for 21 years, and Lester Banks has been a fixture in the district for as long as I can remember. Whether he's monitoring the halls of Bryan High, patrolling the parking lots and stands during Friday night football games or directing the caravan of district vehicles on the chilly morning of the BCS Food for Families, you can always rely on Lester and his trusty whistle to lead the way! His enthusiasm is infectious and inspires me to want to show the same passion and joy for my work each day. Lester truly has a servant heart and is more than deserving of the honor of being named the 2018-19 Lifechanger of the Year.

While working at Central Lester present all of the office employees and staff and many others I think as well with plaques thanking us for our service. Lester did this out of the kindness of his own heart and used his own money. I was just blown away by his thoughtfulness. He is more than deserving of this award.

I have watched him encourage the very young players in Central Sports as they struggle to learn the game. His energy is contagious and all benefit from his compassionate care. Lester is so giving, and therefore, so deserving!!

Brian L Posted 21 days ago

I just would like to say a very big thank you to a very special young man who save my 3 year old child life. We was in Wal-Mart last night in College Station when our little boy got away from us and went outside the store. A car was coming by speeding in the parking lot when a man grab my son and was walking back into the store with him in his hand. I didn't know my daughter had let him out of her sight until she came up and told me her brother was out of sight. I was very scare and started crying and yelling help. My son is gone. Then i notice a black man came up to me and said is this your son and i said yes ''where you find him at ''. He then said he was outside the parking lot doors. saying ma ma ma, then he said come with me and we will find your ma ma. This man is a great Hero in the World. He save my child life. My little baby told Mr.Banks i think that his name. I am sorry. And then ask him can i give you a hug and he did. I tried to pay this man $ 200.00 dollars for saving my son life. But he would not take it. He said i have a heart for kids and i am glade that i was able to help. He then said you can vote for me as life changer of the year. I said you got it. Mr.Banks is a true man of God. Thank you for all you do for our community.

His work at the local high school is legendary in Bryan/College Station, Texas, while spending countless hours volunteering at the Boys and Girls Club. Not to mention the amount of time he spends helping at his church where he is an active deacon. I know Lester has assisted in changing more lives than any person I have known in my 63 years, and I can't imagine there being a more deserving person for this award than Lester Banks.

Lester Banks is a name that everyone in the Brazos Valley knows. As my grandma says, he’s literally everywhere. Yet no matter where he is, he’s doing something for the sole benefit of someone else, which is a rarity these days. Whether it be singing happy birthday, or yelling “football tickets” at lunch, giving scholarships to so many kids or even just the sound of his many keys jingling through the hall. Lester is always planting his little seeds of kindness and compassion with every step he takes.

Our group had a prayer meeting this morning to pray and thank Mr. Lester Banks for all he do for our church family, the schools,and our community. Lester does a lot for our community and it does not go unotice at all. Lester don't tell people nothing about his awards or if he is in the running for something. We have to find out the way. or look it up on face book or emails. You see he is always a quiet man that don't tell any body nothing. We all here it from people out in the community or at church or off the street. He see Lester say it not good to tell people about good things he does, because he feel like you get big headed and then people will lose respect for you. He is just a very hard working young man.

If you've been around Bryan ISD any length of time you will recognize the name Lester Banks. If anyone emulates kindness and philanthropy, it's Lester. He has given of his personal time and money to the school and community he loves. Many graduating seniors have benefited from the scholarships he provides in honor of his father each year. When he came in to my office to tell me of his nomination the first thing he said was "I'm trying to get $10,000 for the school". That's Lester, he has no intention of keeping any part of the award. He will give it all to the school district. Congratulations to you Lester. You're heart is as big as the sky.

To know Lester is to know your life has changed...for life. I am proud to call Lester my friend and I wholeheartedly support him for the LifeChanger of the Year Award.

Fabi Payton Posted 29 days ago

Lester is a pillar of our community. There isn't a single facet of Bryan youth that has not been positively impacted by Lester. From managing the towering high school walls to lovingly encouraging younger kids at the boys and girls club. There exists no limit upon which Lester will go to improve the life of a kinder or twelfth grader. There are countless recounts and stories of his heroic work in our community. Around here, he has become sort of a legend. His good works have touched generations. More personally, my husband remembers having Lester as a coach, nearly 30 years ago. Lester promised the team he would take them for pizza if they scored 100 points. They did not, but at the end of the game he said, "...but you worked hard anyway and gave it your best shot so I am taking you for pizza anyway." With his own money and making a way for all the kids to go. A man of his word. A man of conviction. A man who truly "feels the burden of the stones someone else is carrying." My hope is that as he receives just a fraction of the awards he deserves, someone is inspired to pick up and carry his torch.

Lester Banks has been a living legend for decades in Bryan/College Station. A man of great integrity, honor, and moral character, he has single-handedly made a huge impact in the lives of countless young people by serving as a positive role model and a constant and consistent source on encouragement and support to those blessed to have him in their lives. I am one of those people, having first met him through his work at the Bryan Boys Club, and then when he began his position at Bryan High School. Lester was always there to point and guide me in the right direction, to push me to be the best, to remind me to believe in myself and all that I could accomplish. My life was enhanced and enriched by having Lester in it, and I will be forever grateful for his influence and motivation. I will be forever grateful to him for all that he has done not just for me, but for his community. He is a one-in-a-kind presence, someone so very deserving of being named the LifeChanger of the Year and then some.

Amanda Cadena Posted 1 months ago

In 2009, a little girl graduated high school went on to SHSU and there was one man amongst all her teachers, administrators, and supporters that put a plan in motion to give back to the students at BHS. I received his scholarship as a senior at Bryan High, I stood along side Mr Banks and his mother and didn’t realize how much this man gave to the community I grew up in. Fast forward to 2019, that little girl is now a teacher at Bryan High and nothing has changed, Mr Banks is still very passionate about giving back to BHS and the community. He’s given out more scholarships, volunteered at double the amount of events, and has touched the lives of SO MANY. I am blessed to call him a friend and colleague. I wouldn’t have done it without his support and belief in me. Thank you Lester Banks, you have always been a winner in my book.

I've known Lester Ben Banks, Jr. since he was a freshman in college where he served eventually as president of our Baptist Student Union. I could depend on him to work tirelessly for the organization, be prompt and give of himself with a servant's heart. His faith shines through his life by the way he lives. He is creative, humble, committed to the cause and loved by literally thousands. To say our lives have been enriched by knowing him is a vast understatement.

A 20 year alumn I remember Lester distinctly. Everyone knew him, everyone respected him, and he received authority and respect from how he treated those around him. I don’t think I ever saw him walk as he nearly ran every where to keep up with students. He impacted more lives than perhaps the teachers themselves because his work gets students to a mind set of wanting to learn.

It gives me great pleasure in being able to recommend Lester for such a prestigious award. I personally don't know of a more deserving individual! He gives so much of himself to his community through selfless efforts whether it entails his job responsibilities or volunteering his time in community activities. So much has been said about Lester, but I commend him for his priceless characteristic of giving! He has the biggest HEART and always lends himself to others in need. He is such a valuable asset to his community. He is a CHAMPION among Champions! It is with great respect and dignity that I recommend Lester Banks for consideration as Life Changer of the Year!! In my opinion, he is worthy and well-deserving of any and all opportunities presented before him. He would be a positive reflection and example in the lineage of past and future recipients of this award!

Anyone that attended Bryan High should know Lester! I remember him always yelling 'football tickets" down the hallway. He was at every event I attended while in highschool and I still see him around at many events. I always see him moving, working, managing, anything they need him to do or anything that he sees that needs to be done, Lester does it. I cannot think of anyone more deserving than him for this recognition.

Chris Biggs Posted 1 months ago

Lester Banks is the embodiment of a servant-leader. He has taken everything Bryan ISD provided for him as a student and multiplied it tenfold back into the district as an employee. No job is too small or unimportant to Lester if it benefits the students in our community. I would have a hard time imagining Bryan High School and Bryan ISD without Lester Banks, and I would have an even harder time imagining someone being more deserving of this recognition than him.

Tami Martin Posted 1 months ago

My first year at Bryan High School was '86 and Lester was there and influencing kids already! My older three all went to Bryan High with the last one graduating in '16 and he was still just as awesome. He does everything he can to make kids smile, learn, live better, etc. His support does not stop when the school bell rings, he is helping out after school at whatever activity is going on and needs his help. He is also a great man outside of what he does for the students at Bryan High. He also help with other activities in the community. He was a referee for basketball games at our Upwards program at church. I can not express enough how much of a remarkable man Lester Banks is and how much of a positive influence he is.

Erica Pineda Posted 1 months ago

Lester is a man of God who stays true to his faith i know this cause i attended a few church events where he's front & center ready to help & hear the word. My days of knowing him started at the boys & girls club. He would make us feel so special playing games and running around wit us and make sure to say "ALWAYS LISTEN TO YALL PARENTS GOD WATCHING". From boys & girls club to my Senior year in high school he was there going above and beyond for ALL HIS KIDS. You knew it was football time cause the halls would echo TICKETS I GOT YOUR BHS FOOTBALL TICKETS. My boys attend Boys & girls club & met him he ask whos your mom & dad they told him & what do you know he tells them if yall act up I KNOW YALL MOMMA REAL GOOD?? my boys are now in high school & whos hollering tickets GOOD OLE LESTER BANKS.

This man is the best person i ever seen. He is always finding ways to keep people happy no matter who you are. He has done so much for this community that you would not know what to say. I pray that we will find more people like Mr. Banks in our community.

It would be impossible to sum up all of Lester's great qualities in just a paragraph, as he does so much in so many areas of our community. Everyone smiles when they hear his name mentioned, because he has had a great affect on so many people. I'm convinced he must have a clone to be so many places all over town in one week! On top of his job at Bryan ISD, he is volunteering all of his spare time to places such as the Boys & Girls Club and Central Baptist Church. He will do anything for anyone. Whenever our church gives an Easter Drama presentation, he personally buys a countless number of tickets with his own money to give to people in the community so that they can attend and hear about the love of Jesus. He is one of the most caring people in our community and deserves to be recognized by your organization!

Never will you find him unwilling to help in anyway he can. He is always there when you need him and he is always there for the students at Bryan High School. Unbelievable is the best way I know how to describe him. I have known Lester since he was a student and I cherish his friendship and loyalty and his frankness about everything he does. There just cannot be anyone more deserving that I know of than Lester to receive this award. God bless him and he will be rewarded for his unselfish giving of himself to all the people he knows, which is countless, and the students at BHS!

While he was never in my class, I would see him in the halls between classes and he was always happy and smiling whenever you saw him. He was helpful and kind to others around him. Today, as an adult, he is the same. He is happy, smiling, helpful and kind. He is the backbone of our high school. He relates to our students and supports each and every one of them. He provides scholarships for many of our seniors every year. He is supportive of our faculty and staff. If I have a problem with a student, I can always count on Lester to help. He is amazing and I am proud of him and all he has accomplished.

From the first day i walked through the doors of BHS as a freshman which as a senior now seems so long ago.I have seen this man day in and day out bring smiles to every single student he comes across, Lester Banks is not just some ordinary teacher or administrator he IS the heart and soul of not only this school but all of Brazos county. I can not name anyone more highly than lester. Though he and i have not directly interacted,only very briefly it cannot be denied what a impact this man has on others. the dedication alone should skyrocket him to the top only then to boost him even higher by his charity. If i could i would write more on the behalf of lester banks and how important he is to all of us,but what i will say is i am With all honesty honored to have met this man at all.

After all these years somebody in Texas finally rewarded this man for all he has done for this community. Lester is always going beyond his duty to help us students and this community to be successful I feel like we just don't do enough for him.

Helping our students through their ups and downs has always been a focus for him. Whether he is helping in the hallways to get students to class, talking to them through a rough moment, or helping faculty, he always has a smile and positive attitude. Lester is a vital part of Bryan ISD, across the district. You truly could not ask for a more perfect humble recipient of this award.

This young goes out of his way to make sure every one is safe at school, home, park, and the Boys/Girls club. He is always volunteer for something and when you try to pay him he will not take it. Always saying i'm given back to my community. We told him that you do to much of that already. Then he said God is going to Bless me for it one day. He is so right on that. Please give this man our vote.

My wife and I have known Lester for over twenty years. We know that Lester is a man of God who stays true to his faith. Through out these twenty years you could always count on Lester going above and beyond his duties at BISD by being a mentor and a roll model not just for the students but adults as well. His untiring work ethic and energy he puts forth in his work here at the High School is unmeasurable. We are so blessed to have him.

Rebecca Dominy Posted 1 months ago

I have been at Bryan High for 16 years and can say, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Lester Banks is an important piece of the puzzle when it comes to educating our kids. He has a heart as big as Texas and bends over backwards to help any kid in need. Along with a heart of compassion and service, Lester pushes for accountability and has high expectations of our students. He is a man of his word and works every day to make BHS a better place.

Denise Carroll Posted 1 months ago

I first met Lester Banks when I began teaching at Bryan High School in 1998. He was the "Voice of the Vikings" in those hallways! He was determined to get those students to class, even escorting them himself! He would talk to them all the way across campus reminding them "why" they were there.... "to get an education and be somebody!" Lester works tirelessly day in and day out to take care of teachers, students and staff at every school he is involved in. He has never complained about his work.... rain, shine, sleet or snow. What an inspiration he is to not only the students, but to all who are privileged, honored and blessed to know him!

Rebecca Daley Posted 1 months ago

Lester Banks is the life light of BISD. Every student in BISD knows who he is and most of the parents do too. He is the first to an event and the man who shuts it down and escorts everyone out of the building safely. Though perhaps it is his behind the scene actions that most people are not aware of, the acts that he takes to ensure that students are taken care of, the acts he takes to raise money for charitable events, the acts that he takes to support not just the district but also the community. Lester Banks is the "good" that more people need to embody and exude in their daily lives. As an educator, who loves students and thrives on seeing them excel in all things they do, I can only hope to obtain the level of admiration that he both gives and receives to students.

Amanda Hardwick Posted 1 months ago

Mr. Banks is well known in Bryan ISD for his love of Bryan and the students. He makes a positive influence on each life that he encounters and makes sure to leave you with a smile.

Jessica Posted 1 months ago

Lester is one of my favorite people at Bryan High School. He is the not only the hardest working, but he is also one of the most consistent with the students. Consistency benefits people of all ages. He always has a smile on his face and is willing to help anyone. He supports the students and all of their academics as well as their extracurricular activities. We are lucky as a district and community to have Mr. Banks be a part of our family.

Relinda M Peterson Posted 1 months ago

Mr. Banks can be seen using his own money to purchase tickets, supplies, food, clothes or shoes for kids in need. Often times, he spend enormous amounts of his time talking to kids in trouble, trying to get them to understand the real reasons why they have received a referral or have been sent to the office. He seems to be able to relate to the students on a deeper level. Any time there is a fundraiser going on at school; kids know they can count on Mr. Banks to support them. In 2006, Lester received the Jefferson Award for his public service to his community. He was so humbled by this that he felt he needed to do more to live up to the principles of this award. He has also won the Truman Award from the City of Brian in the past. "I don’t think that there is any more that he can do above the tireless effort that he already gives. If there is any event going on around town, you can always expect to see Lester offering his service to do what he can to help out, especially when it comes to the kids," said Patricia Bailey-Jones, a colleague. "This young man is just the jack of all trades," said an anonymous friend. "You can ask any body in the Brazos Valley about Lester Banks and you will get a true story about this young man that will bring tears to your eyes. You can even call the Eagle, and they will tell you a lot about what kind of person this man is." Mr.Bank would always stop by the Near Recreation Center to make sure that everything was ok. You can ask Mr.Banks to do anything and rest for sure he will make happen.Mr. Banks is a very good leader and outspoken person and truly has a kind and loving heart to all those who he encounters especially the kids. Lester is a great example of what this award is all about. Lester definitely is a life changer here in our community and has been for many years. You all has NOMINATED. A great man Mr. Lester Banks, Jr.

Mr. Lester Banks, Jr. is the face of Bryan ISD. He exemplifies the values that we stand for by showing genuine compassion to every person he comes into contact with, whether it is a fellow employee, student, parent or member of our community. I do believe he has supernatural powers because he seems to be everywhere at once. You will see him the hallway, at lockdown drills on various campuses, sporting events, homecoming dances, convocation, directing traffic and more. I don’t know if he ever sleeps or goes home, because he always seems to be on campus. He has a permanent smile with positivity and boundless energy pouring from him. He fosters relationships with the entire community and will continue to do so for years to come. Lester Banks is unquestionably a Life Changer!

Lester Banks is the most selfless person I know. He works extremely hard to earn money so that he can provide scholarships for students who need help. He raises this money by cleaning the stadium after football games, running concession stands and whatever else he can do to raise the funds. He is always the first to volunteer if someone needs a chaperone. Lester can often be found riding with law enforcement to help them in their job. I have known Lester since he was a student at Bryan High School. Lester would attend school, serve as the manager for Boy's basketball and then walk the 8 miles to the Boy's club to volunteer his time there. He work ethic was strong back in the 80's and has only gotten stronger today! He is one of the most caring people I know.... I challenge anyone to find someone who is more of a life changer than Lester Ben Banks. I am proud to know him and call him my friend.

It's tough to put into words what Lester Banks has done for our community, from volunteering his time at numerous local events to giving out his annual scholarship to graduating seniors, he is everywhere. Lester always has a smile and a positive word for each person he comes into contact with, whether you are a friend or a stranger. He treats each student that he comes into contact with as his own and is always there to help lend a hand. Lester understands what is means to be a servant leader as he is always putting his needs behind everyone's needs, he truly makes our community a better community. Lester is a great example of what this award is all about. Lester definitely is a life changer here in our community and has been for many years.

Trent Cox Posted 1 months ago

No one does more for the students in Bryan ISD than Lester. He is always willing to give his time or his money to support students in any way possible. He has established a scholarship that he personally fundraises for and financially supports to hand out many scholarships to graduating seniors. He is at every campus event to support the students in all activities. Lester knows just about every student by name, as evident by the many renditions of Happy Birthday he sings to them during school lunches on their birthday. I can't think of anyone more deserving and worthy of this honor than Lester Banks.

KenGaston Posted 1 months ago

I have know Lester for twenty six years. I don’t have enough space to tell my story. He has had an impact on students lives at school and out in the community. He volunteers at the Boys and Girls Club and I have seen him talking to kids at school and at their homes, always urging them to do right. He is well known in our community and very well respected. He has a lot of influence with parents and children and always acts in a manner that brings credit to his community and job and will be an outstanding recipient of this award. Sincerely, Ken Gaston.

Brittney Mangum Posted 1 months ago

When people meet Lester for the first time, he relates with them as if he had been their friend for years. He always has a smile and a cheering word to share with everyone, especially children. The encouragement and kindness that he gives to every child that he interacts with – refreshingly balanced with clear, healthy boundaries and expectations – is beyond inspiring. There is no pretentiousness with Lester; only a man who indiscriminately gives his all in trying to point others to the path of genuine love and true life.

Kenneth Cissell Posted 1 months ago

Lester is a shining light in the Bryan-College Station community. He serves the community with a full heart, and makes sure everyone he encounters leaves with a smile on their face. Whether it's working security at football games, reffing basketball games, or locking up the church at the end of the day. Lester Banks is the perfect model of a servant's heart and I couldn't think of anyone more deserving of this honor.

Emberly Smith Posted 1 months ago

There is so much that can be said about Lester Banks and what he does for our community from helping with fund raising, to giving out scholarships using his own money, to being a parent to alot of us students. He has done so much for the BISD that you couldn't really count. He has raised over $2,000.00 for Breast Cancer for the month of October. He has also helped motivated students to bring in can goods for our Brazos Valley Food Bank and Food For Families Drive. I would like to give him a big praise for encouraging all juniors and seniors to take the ACT or PSAT Test to help motivate us to prepare us for college. A lot of us students did not have the funds to take the test but through the grace of God, Coach Lester Banks found a way somehow for us to take the test. This man does not EVER let a student fall from reaching their goals. We all LOVE our Mr. Lester Banks for everything he does for the entire BISD School District. We really appraciate this man for a well done job!

Damien Mays Posted 1 months ago

First let me say how great it is to honor a very special person in my life. Mr. Banks is very well known in the Brazos Valley. He has came a long way in making a difference in students lives. I know that when I have been down and needed help Mr. Banks has made a special trip to come all the way to Snook High School to be there for me. I give all praises and honor to this man who has totally helped me turn my life around. By him staying on me and couraging me along with other students he has helped me continue my education through college up until now. I would not be where I am today if it wasnt through the grace of God and Mr. banks who has encouraged and motivated me to be where I am today. I feel that we will not find anybody else in the entire Brazos Valley that does what Mr. Banks does. He is the most caring, loving, and kindest person that I have ever met. He does more for us students than anybody that I know. He is more like a father to alot of us than our own parents. He is ALWAYS there for us until the end. This man had worked 4 and 5 jobs to help his students become successful in life. You can come to the Brazos Valley area any day or night of the week and asked anybody about Lester Banks and you would be able to write a book on him for all that he does for this community. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment about a very special man who is truly a life changer of the world.

Kirsten Mays Posted 1 months ago

Lester Banks is an amazing person! He has definitely helped our family out alot and has made a difference in our lives. He has always gone above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that every student has what they need in order to be successful in school. I would like to praise him for helping our school come from a low performance to a recognized standard school on the State STAAR testing. The only way we made it is by him encouraging and making us students come to after school tutorials and providing transportation for us to get home.The little pay that school pays him he went the extra mile to make sure that each of us was successful. This man does more than anybody in our entire school district. He has a great and faithful heart to see that every student feels good about themselves. He is truly a blessing in the sky to every person he comes into contact with.Bryan ISD would not be the same without the hard working Lester Ben Banks Jr.

Tammy Broussard Posted 1 months ago

Lester Ben Banks.... truly one of a kind. I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside Mr Banks for the past 4 years at Bryan High School and previous to that I knew of his involvement in the community. Mr Banks is a huge supporter of the local scholarship program at Bryan ISD where I was able to work with him one on one. He contributes the largest amount of funds as a single donor in the Brazos Valley. Without his support each year we wouldn’t be able to make such impact on students. You can find Mr Banks just about everywhere in the community where there’s help needed. He’s and intrical part of the Boys and Girls Club and Central Baptist Church where he helps phycilitate all sorts of events. I’m proud to know Mr Banks.

I met Lester through my sister and found him to be one of the kindest person that I have ever met. He was generous in helping the kids that wanted to participate in a school activity but didn't have the money. I remember him asking the kids how much did it cost and he gave it to them. The kids happily ran off to the game. His trust was surprising since people are always trying to beat someone our of their money. When I mentioned this, he said it didn't matter because people had always been good to him. That was a life changing moment for me. I wish him the best in becoming the life change of the year.

Roy Flores Posted 1 months ago

I have known Mr. Lester Banks and his family most of my life. Lester is an honest, hardworking, compassionate, straight talker. he is a role model and mentor to those young men and women that have been fortunate enough to know him. One of the things that stands out about Lester is a letter I read to the eagle from a parent that attended one of the Bryan High vs College Station football games. They spoke of young Bryan students cutting up and being loud in the stands and the College Station police came by and told them to settle down, the students continued being disruptive. First of all, I know what you’re thinking, settle down at a football game? Non the less, Lester showed up a few minutes later and asked the student to “watch their manners”. The parent was amazed at what the police officers were unable to do with a threat, Mr. Banks was able to do with a respectful reminder. This is only one of the things that Mr. Lester Banks has brought to our community. Being a role model for young men and women and inspiring them to be the best they can be. Thank you Lester.

Martha Little Posted 1 months ago

I’ve known Lester for many years, and his dedication, commitment, kind spirit, and genuine love and support for people is truly awe inspiring. Often the true heart of a person is most visible in times where he thinks no one else is watching, and in these moments, Lester’s kind spirit illuminates brightest. Changing lives isn’t always about huge displays of servitude. Sometimes just knowing someone sincerely cares about you is enough to change the entire trajectory of your life. I can only imagine the number of lives Lester has changed simply by being himself!

Daisy Wilbert Posted 1 months ago

-I have known Lester for over 35 years as a classmate and a friend. He has been employee of the year as well as having been many of awards from the community. -With Lester students are ALWAYS his priority. He has this energetic enthusiasm that is contagious. When a student does something memorable in a small or big way, he is the one that grins and says " well Look at You. Lester loves couching kids at the Boys and Girls club. The kids respect him and loves his skills in learning basketball from 3rd grade up to college. He does not need to be asked or told to get the job done- he sees a need and immediately fills it. Because he is often behind the scenes you may not always notice all the things he is accomplishing. He might be the one getting a bottle of water and calming a fan down telling them in so many ways that they matter when something goes wrong. -In a million little and big ways Lester is there. Lester knows this population of fans, knows their families, their situations. He is constantly and in so many way helping people to learn to "Love" learning, by making learning relevant to them personally. He knows the fans names. He knows their hopes and dreams and knows where the right resources are to help make their dreams reachable. On a particularly bad day he told me "it's not always easy working at a football game with fans who don't always have a lot of respect, long hours, lots of worry about how the fans and how they respect him. Just remember to remind yourself why we stay- he said, "we will stay because in spite of everything there is a college student who needs us". He cut through it all and reminded us of what we knew was most important. -Lester was here for my children when they navigated the halls of this large school keeping them safe and on task, I hope he is here when my grandchildren reach school age too. I can't imagine our school without Lester easing the way for another group of incoming freshmen or handing out bobby pins for and sticky tape to the Seniors for their caps and gowns as they are getting ready to cross the stage telling them, I knew you could do it, never had a doubt.

Lester is one of the first faces I see when I walk into Bryan high and one of the last when I walk out. I have seen Lester at other events, most of them dealing with kids. I saw him at the fair with a smile on his face while working with the kids there. He bring so much joy to our community and our school. You will always hear Lester calling out "Come get your football tickets!" during the football season. Lester will sing durning lunch and it's so funny to watch and hear it just bring joy around to everyone. He makes sure everything is okay with everyone and makes sure the get to class on time by yelling out how much time we have left. He is a part of almost everything that is held at BHS. Pep-Rally, VKOT, Football, and much more. This is my first year at BHS as a freshmen and at Fish camp the 12th grades were all talking about how Lester is so funny and fun to have around, he really is a good guy. If someone ever comes to BHS they will never forget Lester.

Lester has such an influence on kids, and is a great man. He helped my brother keep his head up in tough times while we attended the Boys and Girls Club and would help him stay out of trouble. He could also always tell when something was wrong with me and always talked to me about it or made me laugh to take my mind off it. I also went to Bryan High before moving the past year and Lester supports all the kids there and cares for everyone. He does a lot for us and is just about everyone’s favorite person.

Lester Banks is the most staunch supporter of youth that I have ever had the pleasure to know. He goes above and beyond every single day to make sure that every student at Bryan High School and throughout Bryan ISD knows that he or she is cared for and is important. A lot of people can and do attest to what a great man, community member and supporter of children Lester Banks is. What I believe says the most about Mr. Banks' character and what he does in this community, is the respect he gets from the students he serves. When Mr. Banks walks into a gym, a football stadium, down a hallway or into a classroom, students respond to him. Mr. Banks does not have to ask a student twice, regardless of what it is. Lester Banks' reaches these students daily on a level that those of us in education aspire to. I have had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Banks for the past seventeen years and am proud to call him my friend. There is no doubt in my mind that this community is better because Lester Banks lives and works here. Lester Banks exemplifies what it is to be a Life Changer!

From the time they walk in the door as a freshman Lester will follow them and help guide them, have fun with them and even discipline them all the way to Senior graduation! Lester Banks is a FOREVER LIFE CHANGER!

-I have known Lester for over 20 years as a colleague and a friend. He has been employee of the year as well as having been elected to the BHS Hall of Fame. -With Lester students are ALWAYS his first priority. He has this energetic enthusiasm that is contagious. When a student does something memorable in a small or big way, he is the one that grins and says " well Look at You...he does it in front of the students friends and teachers and its as if you just received the Bryan High School stamp of approval.The little thing they did becomes meaningful and memorable. -Few people know this- but whenever Lester recieves a raise he gives ALL of it to students in the form of scholarships. He has the teachers elect and help select the students in need. These are frequently students with few resources and this often opens a door to college or trade school for them. For many they are the first in their family to attend College. -He is like liquid silver filling in where ever he is needed. He does not need to be asked or told to get the job done- he sees a need and immediately fills it. Because he is often behind the scenes you may not always notice all the things he is accomplishing . - He might be disguised as Santa Clause for the kids at the Fannis Elementary Fund Raiser. He might be the guy slipping your son a couple of High School football tickets because he noticed his attendance has approved this year. He might be the guy that secures the doors during a fire or weather drill. He might be the one getting a bottle of water and calming your son or daughter down telling them in so many ways that they matter when something goes wrong, as so often happens in teenagers lives. -In a million little and big ways Lester is there. We have a large free and reduced lunch population at our school- this means most of our students have a tough time getting by. Lester knows this population of students, knows their families, their situations. He is an invaluable resource to teachers helping them reach the most unreachable students. He is constantly and in so many way helping students to learn to "Love" learning, by making learning relavant to them personally. He helps them go from aquward and unsure to steady and confidant. - Lester notices when a student has a new haircut or new shoes. He know the students names. He knows their hopes and dreams and knows where the right resources are to help make their dreams reachable. -Any student who leaves Bryan High School knows Lester's name and can Quote one of his many humorous annadotes.He is a big part of the school experience, a memoriable part of their young adulthood. -Something Lester may not know, when I was a new teacher many years ago his advise reminded me why I entered the teaching field and was a big reason I stayed. On a particulary bad day he told me "it's not always easy working at a school with students who don't always have alot, you see miles of paperwork and red tape, frequent meetings, long hours, lots of worry about how the students are doing, lots of worry about meeting state standards, it can be stressfilled for a new teacher". Just remember to remind yourself why we stay- he said "we will stay because in spite of everthing there is a student who needs us". He cut through it all and reminded us of what we knew was most important. -Lester was here for my children when they navagated the halls of this large school keeping them safe and on task, I hope he is here when my grandchildren reach school age too. I can't imagine our school without Lester easing the way for another group of incoming freshmen or handing out bobby pins for and sticky tape to the Seniors for their caps and gowns as they are getting ready to cross the stage telling them, I knew you could do it, never had a doubt.

Lester Banks is such a treasure to Bryan ISD and our community. He spends the majority of his days here at Bryan High School helping in one way or the other. Any time you need someone to help with an event you can count of Lester. He has paid for students in good standings with their grades and behavior to out of town games on a bus. He has paid for students to attend school events that do not have the money to do so. Lester Banks cares about not only the students at Bryan High School, but every student at Bryan ISD and the entire B/CS community.
