|Our school is named in honor of Barney R. Greathouse. He and his wife, Helen Lee Maddox, were married and relocated to Midland, Texas in 1929. Barney was largely involved in the community through his work as a Director of the Midland Chamber of Commerce, his help in establishing the Trinity Towers, and chartering the Commercial Bank and Trust (now Chase Bank) with our former President, George H.W. Bush. Mr. Greathouse was involved in many other community organizations up until his untimely death in 1973. Helen chose to see their efforts and legacy carried out when she created the Helen Greathouse Charitable Trust in 1997. Barney R. Greathouse Elementary is located in the northwest corner of Midland, Texas. We have an enrollment around 750 students with grades that range from Pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade. We are honored to carry the namesake of Mr. Greathouse.
