CISNT, a non-profit organization founded in 1994, is part of an innovative national approach established to combat the dropout problem. Founder, Bill Milliken came up with the idea of bringing community resources inside a public school building in the 1970’s. For more than 30 years, Communities in Schools has been helping students achieve in school, graduate and go on to bright futures. Today, more than 20,000 Denton and Wise County public school students are in at-risk situations for failure and of dropping out of school. Called “One of the 100 Charities Most Likely to Save the World” by Worth Magazine, CISNT diligently seeks partnerships which will allow for more at-risk youth to prepare for life. With the help of Communities in Schools of North Texas, many will beat the odds this year and stay in school.
Lori Fickling, Director of Community Relations, stated, “CISNT believes that personalism, accountability and the coordination of services are essential to meeting the needs of youth in at-risk situations. CISNT is led by a diverse Board of Directors representing the diverse composition of the communities that we serve. Mark has become one of our newest partners and his contribution to our cause is greatly appreciated. We sincerely extend our thanks to Mr. Barnes and his team.”
