A flashing smile, professional organizational skills and the ability to relate to all levels and ages make him a invaluable to the Health Science Center and a shining star in the community.

Blair Chappell, physician recruiter for UNT Health, was noted for her involvement with the Junior League and the Cowtown, among other achievements. With her unique ability to determine appropriate fits in both the health care and business communities, Chappell’s insight and professional judgment make her a valuable asset to the Fort Worth community. A Fort Worth native and graduate of Arlington Heights High School, Chappell’s heart belongs to Fort Worth, and she demonstrates that in everything she does.
