• A Letter From the MYP Chair

    MYP Members:
    I hope this summer has been enjoyable and productive with a little fun thrown in! We have had a few great events that I hope you were able to take advantage of, and a few upcoming events to make sure are marked on your calendar.


    Our annual Cheers to Charity event in May proved to be a success in raising funds for Embrace Texas, the charity MYP has selected to support. Thank you to our event host Tupps Brewery, The Cadillac Pizza and The Yard for providing the food, and our numerous donors, sponsors, and attendees.

    Because of the generous support of many MYP members and community partners, MYP was able to donate over $5,000 to Embrace Texas. Embrace connects willing hands with opportunities to serve children in foster, adoptive and kinship care. Thank you to all of the amazing donors! Check out some of the recent photos below. We will have more serving opportunities as we enter the fall and winter months as well – be on the lookout for details!

    In June we toured StatLab, a fast-growing histology consumable provider located in McKinney. MYP members toured the facility and warehouse and learned valuable management and leadership skills to implement at their own companies.

    In July we had the opportunity to serve foster and adoptive families through the Embrace Texas evening of fun with the Frisco RoughRiders. MYP assisted with the tailgate and saw many smiling faces throughout the evening!

    In August, Bruce Arfsten, a professional speaker, trainer and coach facilitated an Everything DiSC Lunch ’n Learn to help us not only identify and maximize our own management style, but to gain awareness of the styles of others around us for better synergies and efficiencies.    

    Plug in to the rest of the year’s events and mark your calendar today:
