Young Professionals Investing in Tomorrow’s Workforce
Young professionals are making their mark in Frisco! One of the many ways today’s young professionals engage in the community is through philanthropy. Frisco Young Professionals (FYP), a program of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce, recently held its inaugural “Homecoming” event to join efforts with current and former young professionals, as well as city and business leaders to raise funds for the Frisco Education Foundation (FEF).
The “Homecoming” event, sponsored by Haiman Hogue, PLLC, and The Cheney Group, invited current and former young professionals and community leaders to a formal evening at the Lincoln Experience Center at The Star.
“We are proud to have raised over $2,200 for the Frisco Education Foundation,” said Melanie Nance, 2019 Chair of Frisco Young Professionals. “In addition to our sponsors, we are thankful to the many raffle prize donors, volunteers, vendors, and guests, who allowed us to make a significant contribution to FEF.”
The donation to the Frisco Education Foundation will support Frisco ISD’s Future Ready Learning programs and provide resources for Frisco ISD students and teachers. “As young professionals, we are passionate about giving back. This event allows us the opportunity to invest in the workforce of tomorrow,” said Nance. FYP is hoping to make “Homecoming” an annual event.
Frisco Young Professionals is designed to provide opportunities for professionals ages 21 to 45 to develop a personal network, grow professionally, and succeed in business while enhancing the community’s quality of life. FYP is geared toward young business leaders in Frisco and the surrounding community, realizing the young professionals of today are the key decision-makers of tomorrow.
