Congratulations to the Town’s Economic Development team! The department just accepted an Economic Development Organization (EDO) Award from national publication Business Facilities. The EDO Award highlights an organization’s programs or incentives for making an impact on community growth. This is the first year that Business Facilities gave out the EDO Awards.
Flower Mound earned its Award for the Junior Leadership Program, which is a partnership between the Town, Lewisville Independent School District, and the Flower Mound Chamber of Commerce. Its purpose is to give junior and senior students at Flower Mound High School and Marcus High School the opportunity to learn leadership concepts before entering the workforce. During the inaugural class from September 2022 to April 2023, 28 students completed all the requirements to graduate from the program. Those students covered topics like character and integrity, time management and accountability, mock interviews, dining etiquette, and much more.
Applications for the 2023-24 program open on May 1. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Congrats to our Economic Development staff for creating this now nationally recognized program!
