Tucked into a retail center at the corner of State Highway 495 and Taylor Road, Princesses and Divas not only fulfills Paul and Jessica Mason’s dream of owning a business, it also helps the couple put young high school graduates to work.
“It was a magical dream come true because being in the military myself and coming from a low migrant background, it’s a dream to able to come and teach not just in the classroom, but be able to create something that you can continue on giving in the community,” Paul Mason said at a ribbon cutting last month.
The Masons, who teach at Cantu Jr. High School for Mission CISD, said they were approached by former students looking for jobs to help them pay for college.
