Dallas Can! Academy, a non-profit organization giving young Texans a second chance through student-centric, results-oriented education, recently presented their Lifetime Achievement Award to Laura Leppert at their 19th annual Motherhood Luncheon.

The luncheon, which was presented by Kimberly-Clark Corporation, and held at Tower Club Dallas annually recognizes women in Dallas who exemplify family and community leadership and benefits the students of Dallas Can! Academy.  WFAA’s Gloria Campos was the Mistress of Ceremony and during the luncheon guests heard from students who spoke about their experiences and goals for education.

Mrs. Leppert was honored for her outstanding achievements and dedication to both family and community.  She has held numerous volunteer leadership roles in the Dallas and North Texas communities, is married to the former Mayor of Dallas, Tom Leppert, and is the mother of three children.  During her husband’s tenure as Mayor of Dallas, she helped champion his various education initiatives.

The proceeds from the annual fundraiser support students of the Can! Academies while they earn their high school diplomas. Texans Can! Academies believe helping these students remain in high school and earn their diplomas is critical to breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty and illiteracy.

Along with presenting sponsor, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, sponsors for the luncheon were Cum Laude sponsors Sam’s Club and Staples and Chancellor’s List sponsor Baylor Health Care System.
