Realtor of the week: Former Capitol Hill campaigner back to real estate in Houston
Former Capitol Hill campaigner back to real estate in Houston Cagle, a fourth-generation Houstonian and graduate of Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, has never really had one particular focus area, due to the majority of her clients being referrals. Prior to real estate, Cagle worked on Capitol Hill running political campaigns for a host of U.S. Congressmen. The work ethic, long hours, communications, research, and working with a host of different personalities successfully are only a few of the skills she learned on Capitol Hill that transferred easily into real estate and have served Cagle well.

Summit MetroParks invests $3.5 million in new endowed fund at Akron Community Foundation
Summit MetroParks' $3.5 million investment represents the second largest gift establishing an endowment fund in Akron Community Foundation's 61-year history. The fund is now the foundation's fifth largest endowed fund. AKRON, Ohio - Summit MetroParks announced Friday it has established a $3.5 million endowment fund at Akron Community Foundation. The new fund will generate interest, which can be redirected to the park service for any project that supports MetroParks' mission, such as programming, trail development or habitat and wildlife research. MetroParks' investment represents the second largest gift establishing an endowment fund in Akron Community Foundation's 61-year history. The fund is now the foundation's fifth largest endowed fund. Akron Community Foundation President and CEO John Petures said he applauds the MetroParks' vision. "Here is one wonderful opportunity to help the community, the environment, recreation, exercise, and all the things that relate to quality of life, grow and remain strong into perpetuity," Petures said. MetroParks, now in its 95th year, established its own foundation in 1991. Over the years, the MetroParks Foundation didn't flourish, said Park District Commissioner Jane Bond. "We decided that it needed to be invigorated and we thought the best way to do that was through a strategic partnership with another entity that's very important to our community," Bond said. "It's a wonderful thing for this community that two important institutions can come together with an eye toward making a future that's going to benefit both of our commitments." MetroParks Executive Director Lisa King said the MetroParks Foundation has helped the park service with special projects. And, with about $1.2 million remaining, the MetroParks Foundation will still help in cases when funding is needed quickly. "This relationship is going to allow us to do more in the future," King said of the new endowment fund. "It's just a great partnership. MetroParks' move could spark other organizations to follow suit, establishing funds at the community foundation that will grow and provide income for years to come, Petures said. Akron Community Foundation currently oversees 102 Agency Endowment Funds.
