Grapevine Receives Largest Donation In History

Petting GS-600-423

Beverly Dolores Roberts Horton was a retired teacher from the Grapevine Colleyville Independent School District (GCISD) who lived in Grapevine for more than 62 years.  Ms. Horton taught elementary school, art, physical education, science, and health, was a drill team sponsor, and a basketball coach. She was an educator in GCISD for 20 years - and had a love for travel and animals. 
At the time of her passing on March 6, 2022, Ms. Horton so generously gifted the proceeds of her more than $800,000. estate to the Grapevine Animal Shelter so that her love of animals would be realized through new programs, resources, and facilities.  The City of Grapevine has never received a gift of this magnitude. We plan to honor her memory well in the years to come. 
In efforts to properly honor what Ms. Horton bequeathed, Mayor William D. Tate will dedicate the Beverly D. Roberts Horton room at the animal shelter later this year. Mayor Tate will share a proclamation dedicating her gift, naming the room for Ms. Horton, honoring her life and career with GCISD, and her generous endowment to Grapevine. A permanent display will be revealed at the dedication.
