A Message From Our President

Judson Robinson III • President and CEO

You Can Impact - "State of Black America"

My Father was the first African American to serve on the Houston City Council since Reconstruction. That means in 1970 when he was elected, no Black had served in the previous one hundred years prior to his election. What a bold and audacious concept that he could do such an amazing feat. As I reflect on this, I wonder if it had much to do about the times, and the changing of them. Pretty amazing, timing or not, but he was a person that believed in the concept of self-actualization. (becoming everything that one is capable of becoming) He’d always say to me, “make yourself a committee of one”. As I got older, I began to understand what that meant. That you need not wait until an idea that may be difficult for some made it an impossible idea for others. Of course there were those that said wait, the time was not quite right, but the time is always right to do right, no matter how difficult the challenge. Trust – The Time Is Now.
