In January, the group introduced Denise Smesny as the Project Manager for the Dream It. Do It. Southeast Texas Education Foundation. In addition to managing the foundation, Denise has created an ISD Task Force made up of representatives from the ISDs and Educational Service Centers in the 7-county Dream It. Do It. Gulf Coast region. The job of this task force is to create a high-need career awareness campaign for educators, students, and parents. The task force will also define what type of assistance is needed from industry to help determine best practices for influencing the positive perception of manufacturing career opportunities to all stake holders.
