James Dondero has always been held as a high individual in the state of Texas. This is especially true since he has helped thousands of Texas companies go from bankruptcy to multi-million-dollar status. Additionally, Mr. Dondero has helped the Texas government make some very smart moves in the area of investments and the like.
James Dondero has recently reached a peak in his life. He has been noted as a scholar through Southern Methodist University, in particular the Cox School of Business. James has been made the president of the board that deals with major issues concerning the school. It’s no coincidence that the major problem concerning the school rests in the financial area. The school has a tough time getting certain funding from the state. They also have a hard time helping students find other ways to bring grant and scholarship money into their lives.
Southern Methodist University and the Cox School of Business choose a handful of qualified individuals to serve on their board every year. However, some board members retire, sadly depart from the world, and move away throughout the course of a year. This is why several new members are chosen on an annual basis.
The qualifications to be chosen for the a school board position with the Cox School of Business are all financial. This means the individual has to have excellent credit, a balanced bank account, and be seen in society as a mentor to people that are bad with their finances.
His best qualification was the fact that he actually turned hundreds of business owners into millionaires. He did this legally and in a quick amount of time.
Though Mr. Dondero is on a school board, he still remains overseer of Highland Capital Management. This is company was founded by James Dondero and it strives on the principles of being set free from a financial aspect and from a credit aspect.
