Big Brothers, Sisters to Host Economic Forum

By Jason Heid |

Will every nonprofit agency in Dallas eventually sport T. Boone Pickens’ name? First they slap it on the new Senior Source headquarters building, where my wife works. Then he takes over the YMCA downtown. Now a press release comes reminding me that he’s got his own Hall of Fame with Big Brothers Big Sisters. (If Mr. Pickens would like to have me tattoo his name on my body in exchange for monetary considerations, I’m open to talks.)

Though it launched in January 2008, the T. Boone Pickens Mentoring Hall of Fame will induct its first member next week. The honor goes to Don Carty, the chairman of Virgin America, at the end of an event discussing the future of our nation’s economy at the Tower Club on Jan. 12.

Along with Carty and Pickens, attendees will get to hear speakers from the Federal Reserve, Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert, and Frisco Mayor Maher Maso.
