Jim Schutze of the Dallas Observer reports (link) that Hank Lawson is stepping down as the Executive Director of Southfair Community Development Corporation (link), effective January 1st. According to the article, Hank will continue to put together deals for Southfair.
Mr. Nevels was formerly the VP of Affordable Housing for the Dallas Housing Authority, and Executive Director for the Oak Cliff Development Corp back in the 90s.
Hank's a real smart guy that really cares about the community, and Mr. Nevels will have big shoes to fill in South Dallas. We wish Hank the best of luck in whatever he decides to pursue.
