Desmond- The Arc of McLennan County

“We just hold him. The tears will start coming and it’s like he’s coming apart from the inside out and he can’t help himself and he needs you to hold him in.

“Desmond seems very, very intelligent to me. Very intelligent. I think if we can ever get past those behaviors, we’re going to find a genius there.

“When Desmond is happy, it’s beautiful.”

-Brandy Abel Clark, Staff Member at The Arc of McLennan County

Desmond is a client of The Arc of McLennan County. The Arc helps children and adults with disabilities live life to the fullest. They’re one of our 24 Charity Champions.

Leadership Development Graduation!

Congratulations to Jesus Said Love, The Arc of McLennan County, Nurse-Family Partnership, Christian Women’s Job Corps, and Shepherd’s Heart on graduation from our 360 Solutions Leadership Development Sessions.

Each year, TFNB Your Bank for Life and 360 Solutions, a business consulting organization in Waco, Texas, provide leadership development for all 24 of our Charity Champions free of charge. This kind of training is something most charities can’t afford. It’s just one way we give back to our Charity Champions.

Last Session of the Year and Graduation

It’s almost time for the last Leadership Development session of the year! This session will be a bit different than usual as our 2017 Charity Champions will be graduating. We encourage our winners to bring their entire staff for this special occasion.

This month, 360 Solutions‘ CEO Chip Wilson will cover Emotional Intelligence. Emotionally competent people exude self-confidence, which makes them good leaders and active team players. They maintain an optimistic outlook on life which helps them overcome obstacles.

Nominations for the 2018 season end June 30th so don’t miss out on nominating your favorite charity!
