Brewer Foundation Recognized by Dallas Independent School District

May 5, 2023 – The Brewer Foundation received a special award from the Dallas Independent School District at the 2023 “State of the District” meeting. DISD Chief of Strategic Partnerships and Intergovernmental Relations Jon Dahlander presented the Foundation with the Emmett J. Conrad Extra Mile Award – awarded annually to those who champion community support for public schools.

The Brewer Foundation founded, funds and manages the Future Leaders Program (FLP) – a public-private partnership that provides academic resources, mentoring and leadership training to deserving students from DISD. The FLP has been recognized previously by the Texas State Board of Education and Governor’s Office.

Since its founding in 2001, the FLP has helped hundreds of DISD students prepare for and attend four-year colleges and universities. These students have earned more than $12.5 million in scholarship offers.

The FLP Class of 2023 will attend colleges and universities such as Northwestern University, Brown University, Cornell University, and The University of Texas, to name a few.
