LaToya Henry (AT&T Corporate Communications) enjoyed interviewing Kevin McDorman (AT&T Vice President of Finance Operations) about his passion for giving back to his community through his involvement as Ignite MindShift’s Advisory Board member.

  • “Very relevant and most valuable to our students. Your program definitely adds great value to our effectiveness. Our students come with a variety of traumatic histories. All are at-risk of dropping out of high school. Teaching the tenets of Ignite Mindshift provides the students with a new type of education and opportunity.”

North Dallas High School students tour downtown business!

We recently hosted students from North Dallas High School at a local Dallas business. The students were honored to have AT&T’s Juan Flores speak to them about success and perseverance. They learned about and practiced first impression skills then had the opportunity to network with employees from local companies, including AT&T employees (shown below) over lunch on the beautiful 20th floor patio overlooking Dallas.

Drexell Owusu, SVP from the Dallas Regional Chamber spoke to them as well. Students appreciated the opportunity to meet with professionals at these top companies to get an up close and personal look at what corporate America has to offer.

Surprise gift bags with items donated from AT&T and office tour host, PwC; which was a perfect way to end t he day. This collaboration between the local businesses, Ignite MindShift and North Dallas High showed students that the sky is the limit for their future!
