Networking Lunch - Re-Energizing for Life
Renee Dormois Sullins
Class of 1985 – Sociology, minor in Marketing
Started a nonprofit organization - Tapestry of Hope in 2006 - to help underserved teens get into and through college.
Describes herself as a: “Volunteer 24/7 college counselor/mentor/second mom”
She began mentoring at her old alma mater, Milby High School.
Started an afterschool program called Carpe Diem, to help students with college preparation and to gain successful life skills – bringing in guest speakers to teach such things as etiquette, time management, healthy food choices, resume writing, etc.
After several years, and personally helping over 200+ students at Milby, she branched out to help students at three other high schools in the Houston area – all being college prep/charter schools.
She currently tracks close to 120 students ( high school and college). Her college students are enrolled in both private and public universities across the state and in Oklahoma.
As a proud Aggie, she has introduced many students to Aggieland through taking them to camps, colleges and other opportunities. This fall, she will have close to 30 Aggies – freshman through senior class.
In 2012, she was one of 20 persons from across the state to receive the Texas A&M College of Education and Human Development Dean’s Award for Outstanding Educator. She was the only non-educator there.
Renee is appreciative of how the Aggie network has graciously stepped up to partner with Tapestry of Hope to help students with expenses associated with college admission, college tuition, books & living expenses.
Renee has spoken to Houston Aggie Women lunches about her work with Tapestry of Hope, but this time she returns with a different mission: delivering practical tips on how to get back the energy to do the things you need to do and the things you WANT to do.
Join in the fun and excitement of Houston Aggie Women as we explore 2018, our 12th year of networking and spreading the Aggie Spirit!
