MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX (KTRK) -- Montgomery ISD trustees cited Montgomery's historic roots when approving the name for the district's second high school Tuesday.

The board approved calling the new campus Lake Creek High School after the Lake Creek Settlement, a recently discovered settlement that predates the city of Montgomery.

Houston attorney Kameron Searle researched the origins of the Lake Creek Settlement and worked with local officials and historians to get historical marker recognition for the first Anglo-American settlement in the area. Searle said he's pleased MISD has named its second high school after the settlement.
