Building a community where ALL children have the opportunity to succeed
HENRY STEWART has been happily married for 25 years, has four beautiful daughters, and four grandchildren. Originally from the Great State of Louisiana, he saw opportunity to advance his career and raise his children in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Henry has always had an entrepreneurial spirit, which inspired him to start his own janitorial service upon his arrival to Texas. After ten very successful years, he sold his company to pursue his interest in the computer technology field. He received Cisco and A+ certifications through Tarrant County College and used his business contacts to start PC Networking Solutions, and was eventually offered the position of Lead Computer Technician with the Irving Independent School District where he as served for over ten years. Henry is pursuing other interests at this time. We thank him for his leadership and service to this organization.
One thing I believe to the fullest is that if you think and achieve as a team, the individual accolades will take care of themselves. Talent wins games. But teamwork and intelligence wins championships.
