Dallas, TX – April 3, 2018 – As part of its “Legacy of Giving” program, Dal-Tile employees recently conducted another installment of their ongoing reading program at Julius Dorsey elementary school in southeast Dallas. This latest reading day was held as a birthday celebration for the iconic children’s book author, Dr. Suess whose talent for delighting children with stories that are clever, rhythmically rhyming, and delightfully silly knows no generational bounds.
“Giving is a core part of our Dal-Tile culture,” said Tena Boyd, HR support services manager, Dal-Tile Corporation. “On an ongoing basis, we have many different ways in which our employees interact with the local schools to help make a difference in these young lives. I don’t know who enjoyed the event more, the children or me!”
“Dorsey Elementary is always so appreciative of what Dal-Tile does to help make their students successful,” said Paula Calame, senior talent development specialist, Dal-Tile Corporation. “It is always exciting to see what great things are taking place in our schools! I am so thankful that I work for an organization that values contributing to the community!”
“The kids really look forward to having us in the class, and reading was a lot of fun,” said Nellson Burns, vice president of information systems, Dal-Tile Corporation. “I’m definitely going again.”
