Jerry and Vickie Durant
Jerry Durant and his wife, Vickie are the role models for leadership and community service in the cities and towns touched by the Durant family of dealerships. True Texans, they combine their love for horses and their love of people, particularly children, in their charitable and educational outreach.
They are honorary chairs of the Careity Celebrity Cutting Horse Competition supporting cancer patients and children suffering debilitating diseases. The Don Allen Health Science Building at Weatherford College is also named for Jerry Durant’s partner, Don Allen.
Weatherford High School has a new Durant Auditorium thanks to the donation of 60 acres of land to the school by Jerry Durant. Cook’s Children’s Hospital, the Parker County Sheriff’s Posse, the Weatherford Rodeo, Weatherford Youth Soccer, Weatherford FFA, and the Weatherford Blue Belles are other programs near and dear to the hearts of Jerry and Vickie Durant and the Durant Auto Group.
At his Silverado Arena just outside of Weatherford, Jerry Durant and his Brazos Valley Cutters hold a weekend cutting horse competition each month and a ten day show every fall called the Brazos Bash. This year the Brazos Bash had over 1,000 entries from all over the world. Just another example of a Texas dealer preserving the heritage of our state and spreading that western culture around the globe. No one does it better and creates more good for others than Jerry and Vickie Durant, their employees and the Durant family of dealerships.
