Gilbreath Newest Member of Roscoe Wilson ES Hall of Honor

Jim Gilbreath is the newest member of the Roscoe Wilson Elementary School Hall of Fame, inducted this morning at the 25th annual Hall of Fame Induction and Scholarship Award Ceremony.

Gilbreath grew up in Lubbock and attended Texas Tech University. After obtaining a Bachelor of Business Administration degree at Texas Tech, he decided to join his family’s agriculture and seed business in Lubbock. A decade later, Gilbreath returned to school and obtained a degree from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Business in the PMD Executive Education Program. Since then, he has served in various executive management positions and has acquired or started several businesses. Currently, he is the owner of Gilbreath Property Co., L.C., a real estate holding company.

In addition, he has served as a member of the Lubbock City Council, the United Way Board, Reese Redevelopment Authority and the Covenant Hospital System Foundation to name a few.

The Roscoe Wilson Hall of Fame was created in 1995 in an effort to recognize the achievements of former Roscoe Wilson students and identify role models for current students. Any adult who attended Roscoe Wilson for at least one year may be nominated for consideration. Upon induction, each honoree or their representative addresses the student body sharing some of their school experiences and voicing support for education.
