Dave Stump, Pierpont Communications VP for Business Development, joins Girlstart Board of Directors
Girlstart is pleased to announce that Dave Stump, the Vice President of Business Development for Pierpont Communications (based in Houston, with offices in Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio), has joined the Girlstart Board of Directors.
Stump is the first Girlstart board member outside of the Central Texas region, and his election to the board reflects both the expansion of Girlstart programs and the increasing importance of its programming in the Houston area.
“We’re thrilled to have Dave as a member of our Board of Directors,” said Tamara Hudgins, executive director of Girlstart. “Dave is an energetic and active participant in Houston’s business community, and he is fully committed to our vision of inspiring girls toward STEM degrees and STEM careers. We look forward to Dave helping us inspire more girls in Houston, throughout Texas, and beyond in the years to come.”
“I’m excited to be joining the Girlstart Board of Directors,” Stump said. “I’d like to see more girls develop the interest in STEM education that my two daughters have developed, and I look forward to working with an impactful organization to help girls across this great city and state become inspired to learn.”
