Young Women’s Preparatory Network Adds Vivian Taylor And Juliette Coulter To Its Executive Team
BY JEANNE PREJEAN
Speaking of changes, the Young Women’s Preparatory Network (YWPN) CEO Lynn McBee has just announced some changes in her team. Two brand-new position have been created that tap the talents of a YWPN oldtimer and an area public relations expert.
First, Lynn got Vivian Taylor, who had been “the first principal of the founding network school, Irma Lerma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School,” to take on the new role of YWPN’s Chief Program Officer.
It was under Vivian’s leadership that the school founded in 2002 “produced strong academic performance, including a 100% graduation rate from high school and 100% acceptance rate to college, with millions of dollars awarded to students in merit and academic scholarships.”
According to Vivian, “Serving as principal of the first Young Women’s Preparatory Network school provides me with insight into how to develop programs that our network schools can use to educate and prepare our graduates for college, careers and serving their communities.”
The second addition was Lynn’s convincing public relations vet Juliette Coulter to leave the carefree life at The Coulter Group in helping clients like the Dallas Arboretum, Methodist Health System Foundation, the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas and The Trinity Trust, to name a few.
In joining YWPN, Juliette, who will be Chief Marketing Officer, sees this as “the perfect opening to help YWPN advance its mission of giving more young women the opportunity to receive a top-notch college preparatory education so that they will be well-prepared to attend college. I’ve seen the positive results of a single-sex education with my daughter and am honored to be a part of an organization with an incredible track record.”
According to Lynn, “I’ve known Vivian and Juliette and worked with them for several years. They are bringing their passion and know-how to further our mission of providing a quality education to many minority and first-generation young women. We are expanding our network of schools, and each one will help us reach our marketing and strategic goals as we help our schools educate many young women and prepare them to become tomorrow’s leaders.”
