Folsom Leadership Award Recognition Dinner Honoring SMU President R. Gerald Turner

Congratulations to SMU President and Dallas Civic Leader, R. Gerald Turner, the recipient of the 2016 Robert S. Folsom Leadership Award! This award is presented by the Methodist Health System Foundation to recognize individuals who demonstrate commitment and excellence in community leadership. It's considered one of the most prestigious awards in Dallas. We were honored to represent SMU and the Hunt Leadership Scholars program tonight. President Turner's vision has made SMU such an amazing place. I'm so excited to see where that vision will take us next!

DaVerse Lounge

For the past few years, I've been going to DaVerse Lounge in Deep Ellum to listen to people 21 and under from all across the area share their voice through poetry and spoken word. Each time, the stories shared are different. And each time, I leave proud of the presenters for their confidence to share their greatest triumphs and theirdarkest tragedies to strangers in the audience. Last night, I got the chance to share a piece that I had written. The piece is titled "Speak UP".
