Vision for North Forest Chamber of Commerce is about “growing and growing with small business like Union Pacific,”said James Leonard, Chamber president. “We are investors in trying making our community to grow and grow.”
Judge Zinetta Birney, guest speaker, said education in North Forest is a priority.
“North Forest is one of our largestschool districts in the city of Texas, education in my opinion is a subject that must happen and distribute the top issue on my list of issues,” said Birney. “North Forest must find a way of providing service to this community, closure or merging to HISD is not the answer.”
North Forest Superintendent, EdnaForté, as well as some elected officials and Houston Community College-North Forest were among the list of recognized guests.
Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee reviewed some of the President’s Obama plans; the American Jobs Act and tax cuts to help American’s small business hire and grow. To know more about this act, you can go to www.whitehouse.gov/jobsact#overview.
