Going above and beyond the call of duty is exactly what Galena Park Independent School District Autism Specialist Blair Overman did recently.

One of her students with autism was involved in a tragic car accident that killed his brother and mother.

Her story of service was shared with attendees at the Autism Summit at Harris County Department of Education on April 10.

Blair spent countless hours at the hospital following the accident to help the student cope with his injuries and the loss of his family while relatives from out of state were traveling to Houston.

Letters from hospital staff praised her commitment to her student. Overman received a standing ovation from Autism Summit attendees for helping this student in his recovery. #Autism
