Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price to Anchor Panel Discussion
Students and Social Workers to Share Individual Turning Points

TARRANT COUNTY – Fighting the school dropout rate continues to be one of our community’s top priorities, as an estimated 9,000 students per year leave school without a high school diploma in Tarrant County.

A leader in dropout prevention for Tarrant County for more than 26 years, Communities In Schools of Greater Tarrant County (CIS-GTC) will present a leadership panel to address the “turning point” of education at its annual fundraising luncheon.

The Turning Point – Annual Luncheon for Communities In Schools of Greater Tarrant County
Thursday, April 19 at 11:30 a.m.
Fort Worth Club – 306 West 7th Street, 76102

Panel begins at 12:15 p.m., moderated by Bud Kennedy of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and featuring:

• Mayor Betsy Price – City of Fort Worth
• Brett Helmer – The R4 Foundation
• Dr. Lily Laux – Texas Education Agency

CIS-GTC students and their individual social workers (approximately 20 of each) will also join each guest table to share their personal “turning points” during the luncheon. Personal interviews with select students will be available.
