LC Community Trusteeship Day
Dr. Carol Spalding travelled from North Carolina to bring her expertise about Community Trusteeship to the Leadership Class. The group grappled with relating the concept of trusteeship to current events including the closure of city-owned swimming pools and urban drilling. The class was shocked by some demographic data about Fort Worth – including our 66% obesity rate and the fact that our infant mortality rate is higher than that of Cuba and Croatia! Nevertheless, program participants agree that Fort Worth has a lot to be proud of ….. and filled several flip chart pages with their list. A great program day concluded with class members selecting community projects where they can make an impact with their resources and networks during the coming year.
