During their Island School Admissions Receptions tour across the state of Texas, Island School founders Pam and Chris Maxey had the opportunity to meet with Ross Perot in Dallas and thank him for his early support. Back in 1990, Perot personally hired Chris Maxey to work at Perot Systems when he was returning from working for the military in Panama. Chris eventually left that position to pursue a career in education which led him and Pam to founding The Island School and its sister organizations, Deep Creek Middle School and Cape Eleuthera Institute. Pam and Chris also were introduced to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, which is set to open December 1st. The Island School and Cape Eleuthera Institute is excited to continue this relationship with Ross Perot and his museum for the opportunities they may present for our students and staff.
