Lorri Dyess, a native Texan, has always been a leader and very driven, fully immersing herself into anything she takes on. One of her deepest passions is the Burleson Opportunity Fund (BOF), created to provide Burleson ISD graduates greater access to post-secondary education. She has served on the Board for six years, spending countless hours recruiting sponsorships, making phone calls, and managing logistics in support of the mission, helping to raise over $1.2 million for Hill College scholarships. She has organized and led fundraising events for Boy Scouts of America, United Way, an “Honoring Heroes” event for the anniversary of 9/11 to honor First Responders in the community, the Brazos Chamber Orchestra fundraising event and The Women’s Symposium for “Women in New Roles” at Tarrant County College. Dyess’ personal mission statement is “Joyful living comes from the constant practice of doing a little extra.” Wherever she plants her energy, her drive and her passion, her community undoubtedly benefits. Lorri is a real estate agent and is one of the top producing agents in our community. She lives in Burleson with her husband Dean. They are devoted parents and grandparents to their two daughters and three grandchildren.
