Gary Dossey to run for School Board District 5

Submitted by Dr. Garry Dossey

To the residents of the Groesbeck Independent School District:  My name is Dr. Garry Dossey and I am a candidate for the school board for District 5.  I would like first to introduce myself and then to tell you of some of my views on educational issues. I was born and raised near Groesbeck on a little sharecropper cotton farm with my sister Betty and twin brother Larry.  Larry and I graduated valedictorian and salutatorian from Groesbeck High School and then attended the University of Texas at Austin where we earned degrees in pharmacy and where I was president of my senior class.  We then attended medical school and dental school, respectively, and since that time I have had dental practices in Garland, Mexia, and Waco. Also during that time I served on the Groesbeck School Board as member and president, and was board representative to, and president of, the Limestone County Appraisal District its first year of existence. I was also an assistant professor at the University Of Texas School Of Dentistry at the Health Science Center in Houston and served my country in the 136 Tactical Air Command Hospital, Texas Air National Guard, United States Air Force and was honorably discharged with the rank of major.

After retirement last year my wife Jane and I moved to Groesbeck to be near children and grandchildren.  We attend First Baptist Church in Groesbeck.
