community as a whole. Those ten cohorts and I
emerged from twelve months together as a family.
We knew each other’s strengths and weaknesses
and worked together like a well-oiled machine. I
had never been a part of anything like it.

We had the opportunity to sit and talk with a variety
of corporate leaders who were candid about
their mistakes and successes alike. The Pasadena
Police and Fire Departments spent a day with us
and walked us through an actual investigation.
We learned about crisis management, both for
ourselves and for the community. Little did we
know how useful that would be in the following
year.

My own personal torture was public speaking.
They brought in professional coaches and helped
us to develop our own style of speaking. I am still
growing in this area, but would not have had the
confidence to step up without my experiences in
this program.

Chairman Question of the Month

WHO IS YOUR EVERYDAY HERO?

Often, as humans, we tend to put a spotlight on celebrity figures
and label them “heroes.”
But what about the cafeteria worker at the local elementary
school who wasn’t able to stay home during the pandemic
because she was waking up early to cook and serve students
so they would have something to eat everyday? Or the local
banker who put in way more then 40 hours per week so she
could process loans to businesses who were suffering financially?
We all know someone who has recently stepped up and been a
“hero” to someone else. We want to know who your local hero
is. If you have a story to share about someone local who has
made a huge impact, please send an email to
[email protected]

Platinum Partner Spotlight

Farwell and Co.

“Farwell and Co. started as an online retailer of clothing and accessories with a mission: “Help the
homeless” by providing a shirt to a homeless individual in need from every $25 spent on the site – a basic
and straightforward mission. Since the company’s formation at the end of 2020 the mission has become
more articulated and organized.
In January of 2021, founder of Farwell and Co. Matt Salazar, decided to take a risk and began organizing an event
that would benefit the homeless in the Houston area to take place in the latter months of the summer. It was at
this point Vol. Summer: Festival of the Arts was created. This festival/fundraiser is set to take place July 24th at the
Pasadena Fairgrounds with 100% of its profits going towards the 501(c)(3) non-profit, The FarWell Foundation. The FarWell
Foundation will establish a much needed homeless shelter in the Pasadena area. Services such as day shelter, internet
access, showers, hot and cold meals, sleeping quarters, mental and physical health services, as well as employment
training and opportunities will be offered. The long-term goal (3-5 years) of this all coming to a head with the
establishment of a ‘Tiny Home’ community that will continue the services of the shelter and provide long-term housing
solutions to those in need.
Farwell and Co. is a small piece in the larger puzzle of solving the housing and health issues of those in need in the area.
It would be a pleasure to host you at Vol. Summer this year to not only help those experiencing homeless but to support
our local small businesses and food trucks that will be taking part in this year’s first annual event.

My name is Fred Floyd Jr, and this is my first full year on the Ambassador Committee. I am so excited to be
an Ambassador and to help promote our incredible Chamber of Commerce throughout our community.
One of the things I love about being on this Committee are the relationships that I’m able to form with other
business leaders that are in Pasadena.

Along with my wife and parents, we own Bob’s Truck Care and Mobile Auto Pros. My grandpa started the
company in 1975, so I am the 3rd generation in the business. Bob’s Truck Care (BTC) is a full-service auto
repair shop specializing in Fleet Service in Maintenance, we strive to be the one stop shop for all your auto
repair needs. Mobile Auto Pros specializes in all areas of Automobile Technology, including diagnostics,

At BTC and Mobile Auto Pros, we believe in giving back to our community and have made that a priority
within our businesses. One of the ways we do this is by partnering with great organizations, like the Chamber,
that are committed to leaving Pasadena better than we found it. Great days are ahead for our city and I
am excited to play a role in the future of our community.

It was a great time at this year’s Industrial Appreciation Golf Tournament, honoring the 2021 Industry of the Year award

recipient, Chevron Pasadena Refinery. Many thanks to our Titleist Sponsors Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital,
Pasadena Economic Development Corporation and Port Houston, along with the many other sponsors, players, and

Our annual golf tournament is not only a major fundraiser for the Pasadena Chamber, but it is a fantastic opportunity to
come out and play golf, if you enjoy playing, but even if you don’t play golf, you can still network with other professionals in
our community by becoming a tent sponsor. Our tent sponsors get to set up shop on one of the holes that the golfers play
on, hand out promotional and marketing material, and mingle with all the golfers, sponsors and volunteers that come by!

Congratulations to our winners of the tournament! Third Place: Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital
First place went to the Pasadena Economic Development
Corporation, second place went to Certified Crane & Rigging
Services and third place went to Houston Methodist Clear Lake
Hospital. Closest to the Pin went to AJ Johnson and Longest
Drive went to Steve Cote.

A huge thank you to Ryan Taylor of T & T Construction on his third
year of chairing the golf tournament for the Pasadena Chamber.
His knowledge, passsion and dedication to this event help to
make it a success year after year.

We will start recruting teams and sponsors for the 2022 golf
tournament in January, so if your interested, mark your calendars
so you don’t miss out on the next one!

Who is ready for some fun in the sun this weekend? If you live in or around
Pasadena, chances are you’ve heard about, and even attended the
Pasadena Strawberry Festival, and experienced the food, live music, mud
volleyball, carnival rides and more! What you may not know is that the
Strawberry Festival started at a time when Pasadena, Texas was known as the
Strawberry Capital of the South. What began as a one time celebration on
a high school football field has become one of the largest and most popular
annual events in the area, drawing over 50,000 in attendance and utilizing
the entire 106 acre Pasadena Convention Center and Municipal Fairgrounds
complex.

Not only does the festival offer a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activites,
attractions and entertainment, ranging from the “World’s Largest Strawberry
Shortcake”, BBQ cookoff and helicopter rides to musical entertainment,
carnival, shopping, variety of foods, it also presents thousands of dollars in
scholarships to very deserving students in our area.

IMPACT Pasadena

With now two graduated cohorts of the IMPACT Pasadena Leadership
Program under our belt, here are some facts and figures on how the
program is penetrating the Pasadena community to fuel the progression to
a better future for the city in alignment with our seven key objectives.

IMPACT Pasadena will:
1. Equip and empower participants with interpersonal and leadership training skills for professional and personal growth
and application
IMPACT 2020 leadership proved to be a great challenge and great success. The objective of the leadership component
of IMPACT was to invest in and develop the personal leadership of the participants. From the belief that leadership is first
personal before it is corporate, participants embarked on a journey to write and clarify their personal life vision statement
along with identifying and defining their personal core values. Their vision and values are the guide and filter for all
decisions and actions. Each participant also developed their own personal definition of leadership that will guide them
as they seek ways to positively impact and influence their relationships, businesses, and community.

2. Match every participant with an elite business or community mentor
Each participant went on a journey of personal reflection, assessment,
and growth through the 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth curriculum
by John C. Maxwell. This component included intentional time with
their mentors, opportunities to learn leadership principles from local
and national leaders across diverse fields of work, and teaching and
training experiences from national influencers and thought leaders.
Accountability to their own growth and development was a critical
component of the process. Participants were regularly sharing
feedback with each other on what they were learning and how they
were applying what they learned within their individual spheres of
influence. Each month participants were expected to meet with their
partners to assess their growth in targeted areas and create a plan for
continued growth and learning.

3. Introduce participants to prominent and proven community leaders
One of the greatest gifts of 2020 was the living and ever-changing case study on leadership during challenge and
crisis. Participants were experiencing the impact leadership has in times of crisis daily. Through the ongoing COVID-19
pandemic, participants learned about their own strengths and areas for growth as leaders, as well as experienced and
learned first-hand the challenges of leadership from one another, their mentors and the amazing speakers throughout
the year including Pasadena community leaders in the industry, nonprofit, law enforcement, government, healthcare,
and education sectors ranging from our Pasadena Police Department and Pasadena Health Center, to BakerRipley
and PISD. We are confident in the character and commitment of the participants as they lead in their field of work and
engage in and influence our community.

4. Enhance communication skills, public speaking training
and presentation opportunities

The 2020 class has excellent speakers. From the beginning
of the year, they challenged one another to improve
their communication skills. Regular speaking opportunities
during monthly sessions gave them the opportunity to
speak publicly and both give and receive feedback. They
also gained practice with recording messages and posing
thought-provoking questions to speakers. They grew in
confidence and skill as the year progressed.

Chambergram 17

5. Educate participants on economic, social, and governmental forces that shape the community
Participants felt increased level of pride in Pasadena – its size, services, and people after the activities and encounters
that were part of the IMPACT Pasadena curriculum. Below are some examples of outcomes shared:
• Encouraged their businesses to promote the various Pasadena sites to see on social media
• Brought “Inside Industry” to high school students at Pasadena Memorial
• Experienced a “shift in personal perspective on public matters”
• Gained a network to “bounce ideas off of” when needing input and feedback
• Newfound pride in identifying as a “Pasadenian” (native or resident of Pasadena, TX)

6. Bring participants together to address real issues impacting Pasadena that will help move our community forward

together

Participants reported increased awareness of opportunities for innovative

collaboration to bring solutions to Pasadena’s “real world” problems. Some

examples include:

• Participated in community conversations about race with area pastors,

Pasadena Police Chief, Josh Bruegger, and Pasadena Mayor Jeff Wagner

• Significantly enhanced appreciation of diversity and the importance

of having different voices in the room (not just who shows up) and “having

conversations on difficult topics with people who are caring but diverse”

• Gained knowledge on redevelopment plans in the North Side of Pasadena

& Shaw Corridor

• Some collaborative partnerships based on program experiences so far have included:

• Brought mental health services to The Bridge Over Troubled Waters and to San Jacinto College

• Distributed food from the San Jacinto College Food Market to The Bridge Over Troubled Waters

• Hosted Family Drive In Movie night for The Bridge Over Troubled Waters at San Jacinto College

• Participation in Operation “Stock the Shelves” – food drive facilitated by the Pasadena Chamber

• Participation in food distribution at BakerRipley

7. Motivate and encourage participants to engage in civic leadership roles in the community.
IMPACT Pasadena participants are engaging in civic leadership
and planning for the future.
• The 2021 Pasadena Chamber Chairman of the Board, Alix Fox,

is a graduate of the 2019 class.
• Six IMPACT Pasadena graduates are serving on the 2021–2022

Pasadena Chamber board.
• IMPACT Pasadena graduates are serving on several nonprofit

community boards across Pasadena including:
• Pasadena Economic Development Corporation
• The Bridge Over Troubled Waters
• Pasadena Health Center (2 Board members)
• BakerRipley Advisory Board
• Pasadena ISD Education Foundation

IMPACT graduates have expanded or opened new business and implemented IMPACT ideas to benefit others.
• Two opened new businesses
• One expanded business
• Three started graduate programs or earned new workforce credentials
• One accepted new position as “community pastor,” a position that developed because of IMPACT’s community

emphasis
• Four incorporated leadership programs for their employees or members
• One wrote and published a book

If you are ready to make an IMPACT, and become the best leader you can be, complete an application to be a part of
the 2022 cohort of IMPACT Pasadena. Applications will open on May 20th and can be completed online at
www.pasadenachamber.org/impact
