George Cormack combined his eagerness to help families transition out of poverty with his love for young people when he became the new executive director of Central Texas Opportunities, Inc. ‘Poor people become invisible to us. They are stuck in the cycle of poverty,’ Cormack said. For approximately 7 years, he assisted low income families while working with the Concho County area with Head Start and Early Head Start. There he functioned as the interim executive director and held a variety of other positions within the agency. ‘I have always worked with children and young people,’ Cormack said. This former dean of students at Western Texas College in Snyder and assistant dean of students at South Plains College in Levelland taught courses, helped students attain scholarships and provided mentoring and counseling services. He also offered counseling services at a juvenile correctional facility in Bronte. Cormack has a Master’s degree in Education, Psychology and Counseling from Texas Tech University. He knows that the commitment to learning should begin at an early age. ‘I care deeply about 3 to 5-year olds. By starting to serve children at an early age we can make a difference,’ Cormack said. Central Texas Opportunities, Inc. is a non-profit agency that serves low income families through Head Start/Early Head Start and Community Services in Brown, Coleman, Comanche, Callahan, McCulloch, Eastland and Runnels Counties.
