GHF YP is a home for the next generation of philanthropists to learn and grow while also supporting the organization’s work to advocate for stronger mental health education and suicide prevention in North Texas.
2022-23 GHF YP Leadership Council is led by Kelsey Cameron: President; Kyah Nichols: Vice President; Olivia Strader: Secretary; Andy Weis: Treasurer; John Boerger and Molly Grace Brown: Social Event Chairs; Katie Witte and Bradley Haynes: Membership Chairs; Maribel Morales and Anna Montgomery: Marketing Chairs; Michelle Schwarz, Emily Sandler and Sarah Cornelia: Spring Event Chairs.

This remarkable organization offers young professionals the opportunity to support their community while networking, attending social events and professional development seminars, sharing their talents through volunteer opportunities and receiving special sponsorship rates at Grant Halliburton fundraising events.
