Port of Beaumont Commissioner C.A. “Pete” Shelton attended his last board meeting Monday, and his colleagues made sure it was a memorable one.

In addition to presenting him with hugs, handshakes and stack of cupcakes with nautical designs, the board voted unanimously to name its new $12.5 million overpass leading into the Orange County Terminal in his honor.

“I am proud to have been a member of the Port of Beaumont Board of Commissioners for the last 30 years and I am so pleased to have been a part of the accomplishments the port has realized,” Shelton said in a statement. “It has truly been a pleasure working with my fellow commissioners and our port staff.”
