CFB Rotary has been involved in mentoring students in the Carrollton Farmers Branch Independent School District for decades, with countless stories of transformational impact. COVID disrupted the Club's involvement. At the Club's meeting on Thursday, August 25, members were invited to get involved once again! On hand to extend the invitation were (left to right) Stephanie Johnson, Principal of Furneaux Elementary; Andrea Alley, President and Founder of Connecting the Community; Dr. John Chapman, CFBISD Superintendent; Lyn Torres, CFBISD Coordinator of Mental Health and Behavior Services; Pam Pena, CFBISD Community Relations Coordinator; and Dawn Parnell, CFBISD Chief Communications Officer--all of whom were welcomed and thanked by Rotary President Matt Wenthold.
Several Club members shared their meaningful experiences in the past with students of all ages, from grade school to high school. Sign up information was distributed during the meeting and is available from the schools, the school district, and Connecting the Community, a local non-profit that facilitates mentoring.
