Mark Lish, a local attorney, also came on the newly formed executive board in the early years of Mentors Care as Executive Secretary. It is safe to say, Mentors Care would not be the healthy, sustainable, growing non-profit that we are without Mark’s selfless service to this program.
Mark Lish is the managing partner of Lish Law Firm, LLP, a corporate, commercial, real estate, technology and transactional law firm whose principal offices are located in Duncanville, Texas. Mr. Lish has more than 27 years’ experience working closely with large corporate clients and businesses of all sizes, including-profit organizations. He drafted, and was one of three (3) initial directors named in, the Certificate of Formation for Movement Toward a Future, Incorporated filed with the Texas Secretary of State in 2011, and was also instrumental in the filing of an Application for Recognition of Tax Exempt Status with the IRS, which resulted its recognition of the Organization’s 501(c)(3), tax-exempt status on March 29, 2012. Acting as Secretary and General Counsel to the Organization since that time, Mr. Lish has provided insights, strategic vision and guidance relating to a variety of business and legal matters, including the Organization’s “Mentors Care” re-branding initiative. Together with other members of the Board, he has also been instrumental in the development of a growth and expansion model which the Organization hopes will help to expand its reach and sphere of influence to other school districts throughout the State of Texas and beyond.
