A warm reunion took place in Pearland as U.S. Navy LTJG Taylor Cooper and Mayor Tom Reid met again during Cooper’s visit home from the Navy.
Cooper is a Pearland High School Class of 2008 graduate, who attended and graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland in 2012.
“That’s one very special boy,” said Reid. “I’ve known his family for a long time. We’re very proud of him.”
Mayor Reid wrote one of the reference letters that got Cooper a Presidential Nomination to the Academy. Mayor Reid has followed Cooper’s progress since he left Pearland .
Taylor Cooper is currently serving on the U.S. Chicago stationed in Guam.
