Edinburg CISD dedicates sport complex in honor of Janet Ogden Vackar

EDINBURG – The Edinburg Consolidated Independent School District dedicated a new sports complex on Feb. 22 in honor of Janet Ogden Vackar, a business woman and philanthropist.

“This is the greatest honor I have ever been presented besides our daughter being born,” Vackar said. “To be alive and enjoy this and know that kids one day will say, ‘Who was that? Well, it wasn’t just the Dale Gas Lady. She really cared.’”

Vackar, who is best known across the Rio Grande Valley as the “Dale Gas Lady,” is also a powerful and passionate advocate for children. Over the years, she has dedicated her time to causes that support emotional, physical and educational development in children.
