Mr. Branch will always be remembered as a great Principal at Oak Ridge Elementary and Houser Intermediate. R.I.P. Sir.
George and his family were lifelong friends from Clauene community near Levelland. I knew George from the day he was born and taught him in high school in the infamous 5th period English class in l952-53 which was made up of mostly football players. He was a dear friend..well loved by his classmates and a highlight of the class reunions which I attended. His accomplishments athletically and educationally were exceptional.His many friends are saddened . Please express my sympathy to his famuly.
Prayers to Mr. Branch's family. He was my principal the year Lamar opened through my 4th grade year at Oak Ridge (the year it opened!). I remember him as a gentle giant who always had a smile on his face. He touched the lives of many children in CISD and will not be forgotten. Rest in peace, Mr. Branch.
I owe my career in education to Mr. Branch. He believed in me, promoted me, and mentored me. His vision and leadership were amazing, and this impacted thousands of children and adults. I will always be grateful for my opportunity to work for him and know him.
I remember Mr. Branch when I attended Sam Houston in 1964. He was such a nice man. Rest in peace.
