I have had the pleasure of touring the Hospitality House of Tulsa, donating household items and food, and participating in the Gurney Tourney fundraiser for the past three years, helping them provide guests with the ‘home away from home’ comfort they need when dealing with difficult medical situations. I have had the honor of meeting guests and know they are truly grateful for the unconditional kindness of the Hospitality House staff, volunteers and contributors during a difficult time in their lives.

Watching the child I work with progress from not even recognizing all the letters of the alphabet to reading entire books from cover to cover is very fulfilling. When I think about the big picture, it’s very humbling to think I’m helping change a child’s entire future by assisting them in learning to read-something so many of us take for granted.

Texans Can Academies are ‘changing the lives of kids’ and helping Texas solve problems associated with low graduation rates. Can Academies’ product is unique and special. Everything is centered around helping the kids by giving them an alternative to the schools and environments they may have previously struggled in. I continue to witness success stories and I am very proud that my companies and I, as a member of the Board of Trustees, are supporting their great mission.
