Please join us in welcoming Barbara Pearce, former Executive Director of The Georgetown Project and current consultant with the Georgetown Community Resource Center, Tuesday, October 14, 2008, at the San Saba Civic Center. Lunch will begin at 11:30, the presentation at noon.
Founded in 1997, The Georgetown Project is a highly successful partnership including business, government, education, health and religious communities focused on improving and strengthening community development, particularly with regard to the lives of children and youth. Ms. Pearce will speak to the balance of embracing economic growth and development while holding onto community values. Using the Georgetown example, she will discuss how community asset development provides the lifeblood necessary for healthy communities and for the development of children into healthy, caring and capable adults. This is designed to be an interactive meeting with ample Q & A, so attendees should feel free to come discuss the great things that are being done and can be done in San Saba.
A nurse by training, Ms. Pearce is a lifelong community advocate. She has served on the Williamson County Child Welfare Board, the Georgetown City Planning and Zoning Commission, has served two terms on the Georgetown City Council, and is a member of the Georgetown Healthcare Foundation Board. She has worked with the Georgetown Independent School District, 1990-1996, with The Georgetown Project, 1996-2006, and currently works as a consultant with the Georgetown Community Resource Center. She has presented at numerous state, regional, and national conferences and has received numerous awards and honors, but says she is most proud, by far, of being a native West Texan, grandmother, and voice for young people.
