2022 Community Events

The year continued with additional opportunities to partner. We worked with the following partners:

We joined the Domestic Violence Awareness and the Faith Communities event hosted by Denton County Friends of the Family (DCFOF), a 4-part series, led by Ms. Cassandra Berry, Community Educator. This event involved a month-long learning opportunity and building relationships with the faith community. Dr. Jackson-Lynch was one of the facilitators during the first session and supported DCFOF during the entire month of October.

We also partnered with Ted Polk Middle School's Entrepreneurship teacher, Dr. Kalvanetta McPherson in Carrollton, TX. Dr. Jackson-Lynch presented – How to Start a Business for Middle Schoolers (6th – 8th graders). And on a return trip to the school, participated as a judge for the students' business idea presentations. Each visit added value to the child's excitement for learning what it takes to own a business.

We joined S.H. Crowley Elementary School's Counselor, Mrs. Britteny Petty in Crowley, TX at the Parent Child Workshop. Dr. Jackson-Lynch presented - How to communicate with your child effectively to parents and their Kindergarten through 5th graders. This event offered parents and children a new focus when speaking with each other, strengthening family relationships.
