Extensions of Remarks

HON. PETE OLSON of Texas in the House of Representatives
Tuesday, September 27, 2016


Mr. OLSON. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the late Virgil Gant of Pearland, TX, who was killed in a tragic truck accident this summer.

Virgil was the longest-serving member on the Pearland ISD Board of Trustees, having served 16 years. Throughout his time on the Board, Virgil displayed true leadership, serving as board president and being a member of the Long-Range Planning Steering Committee. In 2014, the Texas Association of School Boards awarded him the Master Trustee designation. Prior to serving on the Board of Trustees, Virgil served our nation with 28 years of active and reserve duty in the United States Navy. Virgil Gant epitomized the best qualities of a Texan and American patriot. His dedication to his country and community will be greatly missed.

On behalf of the Twenty-Second Congressional District of Texas, we mourn the loss of Virgil Gant. He truly was a beloved member of the Pearland community. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
