Marcus Hiles – Promotes Educational Rights and Opportunities for the Local K-12 Students

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Long-time supporter of youth and children’s development, the prominent investor and philanthropist Marcus Hiles continuously advocates for improving life chances for every member of the local communities. In line with his altruistic vision, Hiles has launched annual grants programs for local K-12 schools to help fund technology, after school initiatives, extra-curricular activities, and professional development training for teachers. Hiles’ aim is to ensure all students graduate from high school with the skills necessary to succeed academically in college, which is a launch pad to economic prosperity in America. Marcus understands administrators are forced to cut these types of additional opportunities due to tight budgets and limited funding, and hopes his financial support will enable many of these critical programs to continue and strengthen the connection between community, student, and teacher.

Marcus Hiles' keen understanding of the challenges young people face in an urban environment rise from his humble upbringing as the son of a minister in the inner city. Hiles experienced the value of giving firsthand and knows the powerful impact a strong community and good education can have. Marcus Hiles has volunteered countless hours, purchased technology and software upgrades for several schools across Texas, and funded many public and private K-12 and college education grants, which help kids reach their potential. He has also been involved with career and job placement services for youths and university students.
