Full of stories, memories, and jokes is Nordheim’s own Gilbert Pargmann. In a new segment brought to the Yorktown News-View, staff writers are looking to highlight members of the community and showcase their work and dedication. Starting with Mr. Pargmann seemed liked a perfect route to take.
As the Nordheim News’ key writer for over 15 years, former Nordheim mayor, DeWitt County Commissioner, Nordheim ISD School Board member, and more recently, leader of the Kaffee Klatch group, Pargmann takes community involvement to a new level.
Pargmann visited the Yorktown office for an interview and a chance to recount some of his many accomplishments.
When asked to list some of the things he is most proud that he’s done for the community, Pargmann paused and laughed: “I’m 85, I’ve done a lot of things.”
Said list of organizations the 85-year-old has been a part of can go on for quite a while. Pargmann noted that while he was DeWitt County Commissioner, which he held for 24 years, he was also one of the presidents of the Golden Crescent Regional Planning Commission, along with being a part of the South Texas Judges and Commissioner’s Association.
