Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price will join FWISD Superintendent Kent P. Scribner and Tarrant County College (TCC) Chancellor Eugene Giovannini as panel headliners of the June 25 virtual summit, Fort Worth: Where the Best Begins.

The summit is part of a partnership between the school district, Tarrant County College and the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce to better understand how education and industry can work together to meet the workforce needs in a post-COVID 19 world.

This citywide summit comes on the heels of eight industry-focused virtual discussions – or mini-summits – held June 2-4 that became the foundation for this culminating event. The individual sessions focused on aviation and aerospace; transportation, both distribution and logistics; hospitality and culinary; IT and cybersecurity business; small businesses: the construction industry: general business; and health care.

Organizers from FWISD, TCC and the Chamber listened as business leaders shared stories of how this pandemic has impacted their businesses. The feedback from industry leaders provides important guidance to the school district, which is also adapting to a rapidly changing environment. As participants listened to each other, it became evident that now is the time to strengthen existing partnerships and create new ones to ensure a successful future for Fort Worth.

The June 25 Fort Worth: Where the Best Begins virtual summit will take place at 1:30 p.m. and can be viewed on the FWISD’s YouTube channel and Spectrum Channel 192.
