EOD Founding ED Jayda Batchelder to join Leadership Dallas

August 10, 2018

Education Opens Doors is pleased to announce that our Founding ED, Jayda Batchelder, has been selected to participate in this year’s class of Leadership Dallas. This local fellowship will allow Jayda to build relationships with other innovators and community minded leaders in Dallas and bring those relationships and learnings back to EOD.

From the Dallas Regional Chamber press release:

“The Leadership Dallas Class of 2019 was selected based on each individual’s commitment to community and high potential for leadership within their organizations and in the Dallas Region,” said Dale Petroskey, President and CEO of the Dallas Regional Chamber. “It is an honor to welcome this new class, and we at the DRC look forward to continued collaboration as we help make Dallas the best place in America to live, work, and do business.”

During the 10-month educational program, participants develop leadership capabilities as they build strong relationships with fellow classmates and current community leaders. Through lectures, discussion groups, on-site visits, simulations, class projects, and other leadership development activities, participants gain a deeper understanding of the critical issues facing the Dallas Region and are challenged to apply their talents towards addressing these issues in the future.
