RGV LEAD is a public-private collaborative that works regionally through cross-sector partnerships to engage students in college-and-career focused learning opportunities.
On December 4, over a hundred Rio Grande Valley leaders came together at UTPA to develop a regional plan for Ford Next Generation Learning in the Valley. RGV LEAD and the Ford National Team collaborated with representatives of 14 school districts, plus colleges, universities, and business and community leaders at the session. Participants are working to develop and implement a regional master plan that will help prepare the Valley’s next generation of students for a bright future in both college and career.
Ford National Coach Rick Delano stated that business/community engagement is key to the Ford NGF initiative: “We are harnessing relevancy by bring teams together and moving business involvement into high intensity.”
Raymondville Family Dentistry and our associated offices: Brownsville Family Dentistry, Edinburg Family Dentistry, Harlingen Family Dentistry, and McAllen Dental Care look forward to actively participating in the development and implementation of RGV LEAD’s initiatives.
