5th Annual Heritage Dinner

Saturday, September 22, 2018

The 5th Annual Heritage Dinner, catered by the Gage Hotel, will be held at the Ritchey Brothers Building in Marathon, Texas.

We invite you to join us in recognizing the 2018 Museum of the Big Bend Heritage honoree, John B. Poindexter. Your presence and support will help us honor this remarkable man.

A third generation Texan, John is the Chairman of the Board of J.B. Poindexter & Co., Inc., which he formed in 1985. He earlier co-founded KD/P Equities, a private equity investment firm, and served as its Managing Partner. As an officer in the United States Army, he commanded tactical units in the United States, Europe, and the Republic of South Vietnam. Mr. Poindexter holds an MBA and Ph.D. in Economics and Finance from New York University and is the owner of Cibolo Creek Ranch, one of the oldest ranches in Texas. He also sits on the Borderlands Research Institute Advisory Board and is a longstanding member of the Museum of the Big Bend Director’s Advisory Council.

Before the dinner, you will be part of an exclusive group to see the Museum of the Big Bend’s Museum Annex project. Larry Speck, Senior Principal architect at Page, will unveil his design for this state of the art building that will cement the Museum as the crown jewel of Sul Ross State University, Alpine and the Big Bend.
