Dontae Robinson, president of The University of Texas at Arlington Chapter of the NAACP, was featured in a KXAS/NBC 5 story on service projects that took place Monday to honor Martin Luther King Jr. "Dr. Martin Luther King was someone who was an avid giver to the community, and we're just trying to further that message and show that his dream is still alive," Robinson said.
Alumnus makes history
Fort Worth school trustees unanimously named career Fort Worth educator and UT Arlington alumnus Walter Dansby as the lone finalist for school superintendent Tuesday, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Dansby, who grew up in Stop Six and started work with the district as a teacher-coach in 1974, has been interim superintendent since June, when he took over after Melody Johnson resigned. Dansby, 61, is the first African-American chosen for the top Fort Worth school post.
