Join us on Thursday, February 11 at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden’s Rosine Hall for the 2016 Dream Achievers Luncheon honoring Caroline Rose Hunt. While raising a family of five children, Caroline Rose Hunt served her church as Chairman of the Early Childhood Division and became a certified instructor of Parent Effectiveness Training.  She has been named an outstanding alumna of the Hockaday School, Mary Baldwin College and the University of Texas at Austin. Mrs. Hunt has been honored with numerous awards celebrating her philanthropy and dedication to the community. She has contributed columns to antique, travel and women's magazines and has written two cookbooks and a novel.


"Some people like to serve, and some people want to be served. I'm a person who wants to be useful."

Inspired by Alon USA, the Dream Achievers Series features Dallas area leaders who share personal stories about achieving their dreams or how they have helped others reach theirs. All proceeds from the Dream Achievers Luncheon go to support Communities In Schools of the Dallas Region, Inc. and its mission to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.


Individual tickets are $200, with sponsorships starting at $2,500. Don't miss this opportunity to hear from one of America's most inspiring community leaders. Please visit the website at http://www.cisdallas.org/Events/DAL 2016 to reserve your spot today or contact Lisa Loy Laughlin at lisal@cisdallas.org or call 214-827-0955 x267.


Mission Statement: The mission of Communities In Schools of the Dallas Region, Inc. is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.


Statistics:    CISDR operates in 77 schools in 12 school districts in Dallas, Collin, Ellis, Rockwall, and Hunt counties, with over 78% of those students living in poverty and deemed “at-risk” by the Texas Education Agency. Among other results last year, 96% stayed in school, 85% improved at least one letter grade, and CISDR high school intervention resulted in a 91% graduation rate.


History:    CISDR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in 1985 to address the growing number of high school dropouts in Dallas and surrounding areas. As experts in collaboration and in providing comprehensive case-managed services, CISDR’s professional staff brings community resources into schools to work in the interest of at-risk children in a coordinated, caring and cost-effective way.
