Marcus Hiles – Executive of Western Rim Continually Donates to Low-Income School Children

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Charity–Prominent real estate mogul devoted to generously giving back to the
community, Marcus
has always taken a firm stand for helping children from less
advantaged families receive the highest quality of education, with no
discrimination to their socioeconomic background. Hiles personally
donated over 3,000 backpacks – filled with binders, pencils, note cards
and other school supplies – to children in need throughout the
Dallas/Forth Worth area.

Charitable actions akin to Hiles’ have become increasingly vital in
recent years, following the 2011 decision by the state Legislature to
cut $5.4
in education funding. Hit the hardest by the cuts were
schools in low-income communities, where minimal property taxes were
unable to compensate for the budget loss. These schools have since lost
an average of 12 percent of their full-time teachers, leaving students
overcrowded and with less individual attention. The New
York Times
reported the state of Texas considered 66 percent of
students in the Dallas district at considerable risk of dropping out,
and Marcus
believes the city’s youth must be afforded better
opportunities. “For these children hailing from lower income families, a
quality education plays a pivotal role in improving social mobility,”
Hiles elaborated. “Kindergarten through 6th grade is
essential to the next generation’s success.”
