Grissom Elementary School was named in 1969 after one of America's first astronauts, Virgil "Gus" Grissom (1926-1967).
Virgil Grissom served with distinction in the Korean War before serving with NASA and becoming the second American to reach outer space. Tragically, he was one of the astronauts to perish during pre-launch testing for the Apollo I mission.
