Words of Praise for Pettis Norman

  • Tom Landry, Head Coach of the Dallas Cowboys

    Pettis showed the fortitude, drive and character to work his way up from very humble beginnings to gain a college degree and then become a vice-president of a bank in Dallas. Pettis was an inspiration during times when people needed someone positive with whom to relate.

  • Gil Brandt, Dallas Cowboys vice-president of player personnel and Pro Football Hall of Fame

    All that hard work led him into a highly successful post-football career. One thing I’ve always respected is how he and Cornell Green never gave up on the south side of the city (of Dallas) and still work to its benefit today.

  • Charley Pride, legendary country western singer and musician

    He was a great football player and successful businessman. But did you know his athleticism extended to golf? We sponsored a lot of charitable golf tournaments and I’m glad he captures those philanthropic memories in his book.

  • Robert “Bob” Crandall, President & Chairman of American Airlines

    Pettis turned the notion of minority inclusion into a ‘topic’ we could all rally around … the Dallas Together Forum had a longterm favorable impact on minority owned businesses and on the economic momentum that has carried Dallas forward in the years since.
