Hello. I’m Dr. Gerry Jones, Vice President of FRI. Baylor Scott & White Medical Center at White Rock and I support FRI because of its forward vision of the future of Far East Dallas. FRI is a passionate and positive agent for change in our community. FRI worked hard to turn the dream of a new Far East Dallas branch library into reality. The resulting White Rock Hills Library has become a major asset and a community hub for our area. They are now working to transform a former crime-ridden, blighted apartment complex and dump site into an urban farm and community recreation center to serve a multitude of needs for all ages. FRI supports a vision for expansion of hike and bike trails and trailheads that will connect our residents to trails throughout the city. From envisioning iconic streetscape plans to promoting new businesses and getting them involved with our community, FRI is working to transform the environment of Far East Dallas. FRI’s passion and focus on creating pride of place, making dreams come true, is all part of their award-winning record of turning vision into reality.
