Bill White’s daughter at Havana tonight

Elena White

OK, so it’s not quite Chelsea Clinton at JR’s a few years back, and Texas Democratic gubernatorial nominee Bill White himself is set to march in the gay Pride parade in a few days. But first his daughter, Elena, will appear at Havana on Wednesday night at the monthly meeting of Dallas’ gay LULAC chapter. From LULAC #4871 President Jesse Garcia:

Elena White is a rising junior at Rice University, where she is studying Economics and Energy Studies. At Rice, Elena helped found Owl Microfinance, a non-profit microfinance organization that makes loans to entrepreneurs in developing countries. President Clinton chose Owl Microfina…nce as one of twelve organizations out of over a thousand to award a special honor at the Clinton Global Initiative University Conference.

Elena has spent her free time engaged in community issues. She was a counselor at Talento Bilingue, a Latino Cultural Arts Center. She also worked as an administrator and math teacher at Breakthrough Collaborative, Houston’s summer middle school for promising students from underfunded educational backgrounds.

In 2008, Elena spent a year working for King’s Academy in Jordan, a boarding school that attracts students from all over the Arab world and beyond. As a Junior Fellow, Elena was a resident advisor, coached swimming, interned in the Development Office, and mentored students.

Let’s welcome this active community member to Dallas!

The meeting will be from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Havana, 4006 Cedar Springs Road.
