I have had a pleasure of knowing Dr. Bonita Vinson. for the past year and a half. Bonita has done an exceptional job as the Dallas Educational Center Director. I find Bonita to be intelligent, hard-working, and a natural leader. Her pleasant personality, skills, and creativity have brought fresh life to the Dallas center. Bonita is an experienced, result driven co-worker who is always ready to put all of her energy and stamina into getting the job done. She not only maintains very good relation with her co-workers, but has pioneered new relationships and opportunities with businesses and municipalities in the Dallas area. Although extremely technically minded and results driven, Bonita has an incredible ability to communicate complex ideas in a simple friendly language. I count her as a dependable coworker and a trusted friend.
Dr. Vinson is an outstandiing resource in the world of higher education and academia. After working with Bonita on numerous projects, it is evident why she is sought by students and colleagues alike for her natural skills in leadership and administration.

I have had the privilege of working with Mrs. McClain on several projects at Texas State University and Texas Lutheran University. She is a true professional and a wonderful role model for college students and new professionals looking to advance in the field of higher education. She is a teacher and a mentor who is willing to share her experience, expertise and knowledge to help other professionals to learn and grow.
Bonita has always been an awesome person to work with. I met her when she became the Director of Career Services at Texas Lutheran University. She invited me to campus to speak to her student about preparing for the real world of work. During that visit and many others, I noticed how her students and her staff loved her and enjoyed working with her. Bonita is a person that will get things done and has the ability to find resouces when there are none. It has been a pleasure working with Bonita over the years and I look forward to a continued partnership.

Dr. Vinson served as a great educational leader. She always made sure her staff knew she was available to help and support them in the classroom. If ever she had to address any concerns, her approach was diplomatic and encouraging. While at LeTourneau, I felt Dr. Vinson was my biggest supporter and advocate, and she enjoyed witnessing my success with students in the classroom.
