The Galveston Chamber of Commerce paid tribute to two extraordinary men on June 13 at the Moody Gardens Ballroom in Galveston. The event, billed as “Two Extraordinary Men – One Enchanted Evening,” honored the longtime local achievements of Vic Pierson and Bill Ross. The recipient of this year’s Galvestonian of the Yearaward was Vic Pierson, president of Moody National Bank. Bill Ross was presented with the first-ever William A. “Bill” Ross Lifetime Achievement award. The two men have been relentless in their efforts to serve the community at large through volunteerism and leadership efforts that set the standard for good works.
