My Passion is for Public Service.
My Roots are in Central Texas
I was born and raised in Temple and attended school here through the 10th grade. I graduated from Academy High School in Little River-Academy, Temple College with an AA degree, and then from Baylor University with a BA degree in Political Science/History.
I coached and taught school for 33 years across the state and was head football/athletic director at four different high schools.
While teaching and coaching, I also was active with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Young Life ministries.
Upon retirement, we moved back to Temple where I have been active in the following organizations:
- Past president, Temple Kiwanis Club
- Past president, Bell County Retired School Employees Association
- Treasurer of Little River-Academy Santa’s Sharing Group
I have been employed by House District 55 as District Director and have been a precinct chairman. I am actively involved in Bell County Republican Party and was honored to be the Bell County delegate to the 2016 National Republican Convention.
I have been married to my wife, Colleen Tomlin Lewis for 47 years. We have three children who are all in the education field. We have six grandchildren and another on the way.
I serve with my wife as co-director of the Adult 5 Sunday School department at First Baptist Church, Belton.the
