Dallas Morning News Article titled: "Bridging Two Worlds: Phillip Shinoda Helps Fellow Asian-Americans and the Larger Community" written by Laurie Fox
Philanthropy World Magazine featured Phillip Shinoda in the article tittled "Community Service: Just Do It"
A brief introduction to Phillip Shinoda from our President/Co-Founder, Mary Ann Thompson-Frenk:
"Phillip Shinoda is a human bridge in the truest sense of the word. In our (The Memnosyne Foundation's) endeavors as an organization, it was imperative that we harnessed the talents of those who not only brought their own life experiences to the table, but who were themselves already living examples of the kind of collaborative and inclusive philosophy we are working to spread thoughout the world.
Phillip not only has an incredible intelligence and strong sense of integrity, but also seems to imbue his actions with a natural sense of humilty that is rarely found in individuals with his long list of accomplishments. It's that natural humility that made, Coke Buchanan (Executive Director) and I realize that here was a man capable of recognizing value in cultures across the globe and areas of knowledge that might be equally foreign to him and others.
As the main brain and strategist behind developing the building and the constituancy for a vision as inclusive and interactive as the Memnosyne Campus, Phillip will be meeting with a wide range of people from the leading scientists of multiple fields to spiritual leaders of diverse traditions to artists and more. I am supremely confident in his unique ability to engage such a wide range of fascinating individuals and to pull from them a cohesive vision that both Texas and the world community will benefit from for ages to come."
